The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver is a USB device that hooks into a Windows computer. Once installed, it allows you to connect up to four Xbox 360 wireless controllers and four wireless headsets to your computer. You cannot manually shut off the wireless controllers connected to the receiver, but by default, they will automatically shut off after being idle for 10 minutes. However, you may want to shut them off before this, as leaving them on can drain the controllers' batteries.
