Just a quality of life issue - Controller standby not freezing hands in place

When i put down my controllers in vr and they go in standby mode, my hands in vrchat do not freeze in the place that they last were tracked when entering standby like they previously did about a couple weeks ago.

Now instead of freezing in the last tracked position my hands become controlled by the default avatars animations, which at most times looks stupid if i’m just sitting down or laying somewhere. I do not want this to be the case.

Any ideas guys?

Freezing in place was a temporary bug. The intended behavior is to go to the animation. This is an important feature for people who can only use one hand, and disrupted their experience significantly when it did not behave as intended. It is unlikely for this to change.

is there no way around it? the new behaviour is irritating to say the least.
