Description

In some games that require classic controller and disconnect the Wii remote after a certain period of inactivity (like Paper Mario), you cannot enable Wii remote after it has been disconnected by the emulated software by pressing buttons on the classic controller.
You have to either disable and enable it in the controller's settings, or you have to bind any other key to the Wii remote for reconnecting the wii remote.
However, pressing buttons on the classic controller while it is not disconnected by the game delays that disconnection.
Sorry for my poor English.

I think this is how it works on real hardware - extension controllers such as the classic controller don't get any power when the remote is off. So, this wouldn't be possible with a real wii remote. However, #8810 and https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/2774 indicate that this should work with emulated wii remotes.

This is broken in 5.0-17269 (I tested with both the nunchuk and the classic controller), so it was broken before the recent changes for wii remote netplay and the like. I'm not sure exactly which version it became broken in, though.

It was determined in the past that doing this was less accurate and made the code more complicated -> https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/8986

Do we want to revisit this as a potential enhancement, or keep hardware behavior?
