Maschine+ Files In Controller Mode?

Now that I've decided to use the Maschine+ in controller mode only, I have two questions - most of my user files from my SD card that I moved over to the user file on my Mac are not showing up on my Maschine+ - files are currently located in documents/native instruments/user content. Some show up because I placed them directly in native instruments/maschine 2/sounds. I have no idea where I'm supposed to place all my fm8 massive, etc patches ive created. I would think they go in the user file. Second, when I'm in controller mode, the Maschine+ doesn't turn off after I quit the software. The screen says "Production and Performance System" on the right screen and "MASCHINE+" on the left. Is that the default sleep mode screen? Weird.

     I have no idea where I'm supposed to place all my fm8 massive

    Maschine files (Projects, Groups, Sounds, Samples, Recordings) belong into:

    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/Maschine 2/<Type>
    

    e.g.

    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/Maschine 2/Projects/
    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/Maschine 2/Groups/
    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/Maschine 2/Sounds/
    

    Files related to other products (FM8, Massive, Monark, Prism) belong into:

    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/<Product>/
    

    e.g.

    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/FM8/
    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Massive/
    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Monark/
    ~/Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Prism/

    Thanks! Ya, it seems I was doing everything right but my problem was I needed to go to library in settings and rescan. That was th main issue. Everytime I think Ive figured everything out, I seem to hit one of these little snags.

    As for standby in controller, it seems odd that the power button doesn't flash red indicating bg sleep mode and instead, according to the manual, displays the continuous light and orange color that indicates power on mode.
