well at least we can turn it off but it should be off by default, then we can turn it on if we want to.

sdozzo1356d ago

Should be on by default so you don't fry something.

ronin4life1356d ago

The default should probably be off, as most things like this would be. With a pop-up during initial setup explaining the feature and asking if you want to utilize it.

BlmThug1355d ago

The way the title is worded, it's as if the setting cannot be changed, but instead it's a simple fix and as such it does not deserve an article on it, especially one with such a provocative title

MegaLagann1356d ago

Not a big deal, you can turn the feature off. Also, who keeps their system on unattended for that long? But i'm sure some people will make a big deal over nothing...Mika...

FinalomegaS1356d ago

going to waste that 1 bubble on this... yup I can see it already.

"All is not lost, however. This is able to be adjusted within the system options. You can turn the feature off entirely, or simply adjust the range of 'idle time' the system needs to register. All in all it's not a big deal - unless you don't know it exists"

i like this option, I would put it for 4hours. I tend to nap for a few with the tv on so this is great. Left my 360 once for 40 hours...

FinalomegaS1356d ago

"You took a 40 hours nap? "

was sick... 360 is in my office so i sorta forgot it on when i went to the bedroom.I have it on top of this type of anti fatigue mat to absorb the noise vibration. When you go a pee during the night you can't even hear it. Weird how that happen...

good i love the feature i always wake up in the middle of the night with the system menu music going of because my girlfriend never shuts things down before she gos to bed

FinalomegaS1356d ago

jesus i thought it was just me, mine does the same thing....

and they leave everything out on the table ( for me to put away) so they can just slip into bed.

Dr_Salvitor1356d ago

the only thing worse is when you fall asleep watching a DVD and the menu music just keeps looping but your to tired to get up and turn it off and it gets in your head to the point when you finally turn it off you can still hear it playing.

sdozzo1356d ago

Consoles need the sleep feature like Vita.

FinalomegaS1356d ago

console is like PC tower.

Vita/handheld device are like laptops.

Power managements should be treated as they are always connected or running on batteries(save power) or don't care always connected/plug.

I can see why they don't have the same features.

sdozzo1356d ago

I agree and know why they have different features... but imagine jumping right back into a game (literally, 2 seconds of waiting). It would change the industry.

HappyGaming1355d ago

Yeah but it is not as important... On Vita if you are playing on the go you might have to stop to get off the train the turn it back on at the coffee shop then stop again when you friend shows up. With portable gaming a lot more things cause you to pause a game and a simple pause button would waste to much battery.

PS-ADDICT1356d ago (Edited 1356d ago )

I Would Love to Come Home To my PS4 and just keep Playing GTA 6 right were i left off... If it were like that id probrably pass all my games like in 2 sittings, sometimes the Company Logo, the Auto Save Message, the Siezure Warning, The Trying To Connect To Online Game Network, The Built in Game intro, The Press Start Screen, The Continue Load Screen ,The Loading Screen kill the thought of wanting to play

iamnsuperman1356d ago

It should be off by default but it is a good feature. Hopefully it will be advanced on by having it shut off automatically after you downloaded something from the store.
