One of the strangest things about the new console transition is to understand what has changed or changed – On PS5, turn off the PlayStation remotely via the controller Already dispatched!
On PS5, the situation has changed: on the new machine You only need to click the PlayStation button to bring up a wider menu Tiles, trophy progress, notifications, etc. The power button is on the far right side of this menu – Right around the corner, easy to miss at first!
Then pressing the power button will give you the classic PlayStation power options that PS4 owners will be used to. You can enter the “rest mode” to keep the PS5 half-open, and be able to perform some specific operations (described later), completely shut down the PS5 (help to save power, you can also choose to turn off the power).
have to Before unplugging the power of the machine, please select first to avoid data damage), and finally select the option to restart the PS5, that is, to turn off the power and then turn it back on. This is sometimes useful for handling errors.
The next question you may want to ask is, considering it is always using power, what are the benefits of “rest mode”… so let’s talk briefly.
What rest mode can PS5 do
The rest mode is not a new feature of PS5, but for new users of the machine, it is worth knowing the official function of this standby mode. It essentially turns off the power to the console, but it is only in a suspended state, which means that it is still consuming a little power, but not as good as when it was fully turned on. By default, when you press the physical power button, PS5 will always power down to “sleep mode”, but you can change it in the settings as needed.
The rest mode has some advantages for you (the player). This is why, unless you pay special attention to power consumption, you should keep the PS5 in rest mode:
- It will charge your controller: In static mode, by default, the PS5 will power the USB port after it is turned off. This means you can plug the DualSense controller into a power source and it will be recharged next time you use the device. You can even plug in other USB devices to charge in the same way, and it will work in most cases. In the “System and Power Saving” section of the PS5 settings menu, you can change the power supply time of the USB port after the PS5 is turned off. By default, this is three hours.
- Your current game is still paused: Although the PS5 does not have the Xbox Quick Resume equivalent function, even after the computer is completely unplugged, the Xbox can still start the game immediately, but the PS5 can keep the game in the system memory in the paused state-but only when in the “rest mode” “Time. Turning off the power and entering “rest mode” means that if you start the same game immediately, you will return to where you left off.
- It unlocks the remote playback and control functions: Using PS5 in “rest mode”, you can log in to the computer remotely and use it from a distance. This means that you can use the PlayStation App on your phone to install the game so that you can use it when you return to the machine, or you can remotely play the game on a supported device through remote playback. For these functions, you need to check the settings for opening PS5 through the network in the “System”, “Power saving and rest mode” section of the console settings.
- Keep the game and save it up to date: In the “rest mode”, PS5 can log in to the Internet quietly in the background, keeping the games you have played recently up to date. Similarly, if you have a PlayStation Plus membership and like to upload saved content to the Cloud, PS5 can keep statistics and ensure that your saves are safely stored on the Internet when idle in idle mode.
