If you’re like me, you’ve tried to wake up your Switch console with the joycon only to be disappointed that it didn’t work, and then you walk over to the system and press the power button.

Well.. I’ve tried pressing the home button and nothing happened.
But something finally enticed me to HOLD it. For about 3 seconds and it boots up.

I have had a switch since launch and just now figured this out!
Maybe I haven’t tried holding it before because I have a PS4 and you only have to tap the home button on that.
I don’t know!
I’m just glad there’s a way to do it haha

I don’t know if this is common knowledge but hopefully I help someone else out!

I use the pro controller and you only have to tap the home button on it. You just have to make sure not to press any other buttons or it doesn't work.

Edit: btw, it doesn't come on straight away. You have to wait a few seconds.

It can even turn on your TV at the same time if you have it set up that way and the TV supports it.
