The PS5 is the generational successor to the PS4 with improved fps and load times and better overall graphical fidelity in games. In addition to being the next iteration of the console lineup from Sony, it is also available in 2 versions with one being digital-only and the other having an optical drive for CDs. Despite the two types of devices offered, supply chain issues made the console barely available to the customers. Despite this, there are a lot of players that got their hands on this device and discovered the new and overhauled UI. In this article, we are going to take a look at how to put PS5 in rest mode without a controller.
A controller is often the only method of input for console players as it is integral to the console experience. In order to interact with the UI and the machine apart from the most basic buttons, a controller would be necessary. In addition to it being the only input method, it is also a convenient way to turn the system on or turn it off. It can be done by accessing various menus in the UI through which the system can be put into rest mode or turned off completely.
How to put PS5 in rest mode without controller?
The rest mode of a PS5 is different from a total power off. In Rest mode, the console can still download firmware, and software updates and charge any controllers connected to the USB ports of the console. In a total power off, all power is cut and the device effectively shuts down. There are of course well labeled and well-defined ways to do this with a controller but in case you temporarily misplace the controller or it runs out of charge, you can also put your console into rest mode manually.
In order to put the console in rest mode, you will need to use the power button. Holding down the power button can both shut the system down or put the system into rest mode. The difference is the amount of time you will need to hold the power button to either shut the system down or put it into rest mode. In order to put it into rest mode, hold the power button down until you hear a single beep. Release the power button after you hear a single beep. If you hold down until you hear 2 beeps, the console will be shut down and will need to be restarted to be put into rest mode.
