Longtime user pretty much from day 1.  Never had any major problem over the years.  Didn't play CoD for a couple months and now after 10min it just shuts off.

Tried multiple controllers
Same mouse and keyboard I've always used
No Power Save settings on PS4

Factory reset could really fix this or is there a hardware issue maybe?

Thanks for any help.

There is a known 8 minute disconnect issue when using an outdated firmware and a new controller. You may just need to update then change the console communication method. Details in the link below.

You can find the latest firmware below. Please read the instructions on the download page.

Check it the USB communication method is enabled in Settings > Devices > Controllers.

Well you wouldn't need to set it to USB communication method if you're using an older non-slim controller. The latest firmware and USB comm supports your new slim controller. If you ever want to use the new one you will need to update your firmware.
