It maybe related to the latest firmware update of the controllers, the orange LED doesn't switch to white anymore after being charged to 100% on both of my controllers. I can leave them all night charging and the LED's always show orange.

Hi there. Thank you for letting us know. What version of Windows are you on and what version of SteamVR are you using? (Beta or Release?)

i'm on win10 pro and SteamVR beta. I already tried to reset the controllers and had some luck with one of them, showing the white LED again, but i haven't discharged them properly since then. I guess i have to wait until i have to charge them again.

Hi, im also seeing this behaviour with my SteamVR 2.0 controllers. The charge LED remains orange even after the controllers are fully charged. After they are charged, if i unplug and replug the controller back in only then will it show up white, but it never turns white after they have been charged after use.
They are on the latest firmware as of today and it doesnt really matter what system spec i have as the computer isnt on while they are charging...

I have the same issue with my Vive controllers 2018 controllers that came with my three days old HTC Vive Pro full kit. The light on both controllers stay orange forever while charging. Mine never return to white, even if I unplug and re-plug in power. I hope this gets addressed soon.

Same here. All the latest updates are installed. Controllers are on the charger, nut after nearly 20 hours LEDs are still red.
The Base stations also never turn off - have to unplug them

@dniq, As stated above, the controller error seems to be a firmware/SteamVR status reporting error - It may take some time to fix simply due to the fact that it's a pretty lengthy process to get firmware updates validated and published via SteamVR. If you unplug them and replug them back in, they should indicate white if they are fully charged.
Bluetooth power management is not supported on 2.0 lighthouses currently via the Pro.
I'll look into seeing if I can get a status update about both of these ticket items.
