Is it normal that the controller needs to be woken up almost each time i pick it up?
It takes about 15/20 seconds before i can use it, quite annoying if you quickly want to change a track you don't like...
Battery life is quite appalling too
I also have ipeng but am experiencing a similar lag although a little faster but i needs to connect first before i can control it sometimes 1 room goes on first and i need to tweak to get the other room on and sometimes it just works like i want it to
Sonos is starting to look better each day

Controller wake up issues

It's possible to improve the "wake up" time of the controller, but it will make the battery run down faster. On the controller, if you go to "Settings/Advanced/Factory Test/Power Management" you can change the settings. I have mine set to "Sleep Timout: 60; Suspend Timeout: 3600; Suspend Enabled: not checked; Wireless Power Savings: Checked". The last item unchecked may help too... I think the key is to disable "suspend". My controller usually lives in the cradle, but when I have it out-and-about it comes to life pretty quickly when picked up. Like I said, however, disabling "suspend" means it doesn't go into the low power saving mode, so the battery will discharge somewhat quicker.

I keep my controller in the charging cradle most of the time. It avoids having to look for it down the back of the sofa. So I take advantage of the answers above, since battery life isn't an issue for me.
