Controller not working?

So this has happened twice during online play. I have an Xbone controller on my PC but during play it’ll just automatically not work. I don’t have any messages popping up saying the controller disconnected but the thing still won’t work until a few attempts at reconnecting the USB.
Any idea what’s going on?

Are you using USB3.0?

Does you controller have batteries or a battery pack in it?

I’m using a USB3.0 on my PC and a really nice Volutz USB cable. And yes the controller it has batteries in it
