no idea how to set up wireless controllers with pc but with a wired controller you just plug it in but you probably know that already

windows seems to recognize the switch pro controller as a directinput controller, and joy2key lets me map it, but none of my inputs seem to be registering

guess i'm spending the rest of the night troubleshooting

EDIT: got it working but only in wireless mode so guess i just have to make sure i dont drain the battery

That's why I never got into computer gaming too much. It's a hassle.

For some games, nothing will beat the feel of a mouse and keyboard

For most games, I prefer a controller

Why can’t I fall asleep in 20 minutes like I used to? Ever since I got sick in December, I’ve been unable to fall asleep in 20 minutes.

I am god awful at using the mouse in games like Counter-Strike. (the last real computer game I've actually played.) My fingers were made to use controllers. Although I am jealous that I miss out on Steam as a whole.
^^^^^^^^^
I essentially close my eyes and sign off from the world so I don't have any tips for you on falling asleep other than you should probably exercise more if you don't. If you're not exhausted by the time you're getting into bed then that will certainly put you down. When I go for a walk at night I just pop in some headphones and listen to a podcast so I don't get bored and stay productive at least.

Go for a long brisk walk around the block just to give yourself that little bit of activity your body needs every day. Try to fall asleep consistently at the same time and give yourself 7-8 hours to do so each night. I don't even need an alarm clock I wake up at the same time every morning, for the most part, give or take a few minutes because I have a routine.

I go to bed at 9:26, and if I'm not asleep by 9:36-9:40, I give up and take a sleep formula pill.

Should I give myself more time?

Most of those pills are just supercharged antihistamines designed to make you feel sluggish and drowsy. If you're frequently unable to fall asleep you should take those pills not when you can't fall asleep but before you even try to fall asleep. Take one after 8 so it has time to kick in.

Guess exercise isn't in the cards since you didn't address it but still that's probably going to work better than sleeping aids. Treat the problem not the symptom.

I try to get at least 1 hour of exercise a day, but I break it up into 20 minutes at a time.

Yes. The sleep formula I take contains melatonin.
