I found this.  Xbox Controller Disconnects  Good Luck!

i had this problem and found it was the battery compartment causing the problem.i replaced it with one from another controller and now it works fine.

Battery pack losing contact because of the rumble motors is the most likely reason. You should notice a small piece of plastic protruding out of the controller into the battery case. This closes a contact on the normal battery packs and it's that contact point that might need mild cleaning, or a small piece of paper to put even more pressure on that contact. On the rechargeable packs the contacts might need some simple cleaning and a rubber eraser works well enough for cleaning copper contacts.
