Steam detecting PS3 controller when it's not connected

When looking through my controller configurations I have my XBOX one controller which is working fine with xow. however my playstation 3 controller seems to be detected even when it’s not plugged in. When I do plug it in it shows up as a seconday controller and it thinks there are 2 ps3 controllers connected.

I’m running Kernal 5.4 LTS and the latest Manjaro KDE release.

ultimately I think this is causing a problem with getting skyrim SE working with the mouse (I do have it forced off for this game in settings). It doesn’t show up even in borderless fullscreen. I’m running it with tkg-proton 5.17 I’ve also tried GE 5.9 and proton 5.13

maybe the controller isn’t the issue but I don’t know how to solve this.

Found fix for Skyrim. Skyrim Steam play linux fix thread :: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition General Discussions

Still curious about the PS3 controller though
