Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
It sounds as if the xbox it self is locking up. If that is the case than you will need to contact Microsoft directly regarding the issue. I have also listed the steps to trouble shoot the controller as well.
1. Sync system first (By pressing the sync button on the system)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hit the button on the controller
Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.
Try another controller with your xbox or try your controller with a different xbox. Repeat sync process above.
If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.
If your controller works with another xbox and no other controllers work with your xbox than there is a issue with your console.
For issues related to the xbox I would suggest contact xbox directly by calling 1800 my xbox.
If possible please rate the solution I have posted.

Tips for a great answer:
The Xbox 360 utilizes two
types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a
video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You
can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a
wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
