TE Fightstick (PS3) wakeup issue

Hejsan friends.

I have a little odd issue with my TE. Usually when starting up the PS3, the stick seems to be inactive or not to be recognized. So i cant do anything with it. The only way to get it on is to move either the microswitch for the buttonlock or the stick layout (dp, ls, rs).

I hate that anytime I have to do, cause I could premonize that surely those two switches might be the first to get broken and they are the only switches that AREN’T easy to suspend.

Any advices on that issue? Also changing the assignment of the regular pads doesn’t give a reliable solve.
