Here is an easy way to fix the nasty PlayStation 4 firmware Rest Mode Bug
I guess I'll try it, and add it to the ever-growing list of "fixes".
haha, nice disagrees. with what, i have no idea. anyway, i tried this and i was able to go into rest mode and come back out without problem a few times. not saying this was what did it, just saying i did this and i haven't had any problems since.
I think its because there isn't an ever growing list of fixes Only other one I can think of is having to restore licenses from the settings menu if some downloaded content isn't showing up or working
That's because consoles don't get bugs when updating that's only pc. Consoles are convenient
I switched that right after I downloaded, and I never had any issues
''The ever-growing list of fixes'' belong to that other plataform, don't you remember?, you know the one with the RROD-FIX, the disc scratching-fix, etc, etc...;)
live in the now, let the past go.
Yeah, RROD and the disc scratches for the xbox 360 was probably the most embarrassing moment I have ever witnessed of my time in gaming which goes back to Sega master system. Operating system bugs happen. They will fix it withing a week or 2.
HeavenlySnipes.. au contraire
Didnt work for me :(
uh oh, stealth disagrees. apparently you're wrong and it DID work for you.
I will give you a symptomatic agree and bubble up, that sucks dude. much love
the only thing that worked was going in to safe mode and updating the system again... (option 3)
I have the Evolve alpha downloading right now, after hearing about these issues I'm worried it'll cancel the download and it's been going for hours now sorry for those who are having issues hopefully they sort this out soon so they can all get back to playing their games :)
I put mine in rest mode last night it downloaded. I had no disc in the drive or anything running but it definitely worked
this fix doesn't work. the bug it's totally random. sometimes happen, sometimes it wont. just wait the new firmware patch.
That's not very comforting, considering Sony isn't exactly expeditious when it comes to updates
@ King http://us.playstation.com/s... There is 12 update on that list and if you add 2.0 to it , thats 13. 13 in less then a year. Could they have done more? Yes , obviously , if they could release new update like steam does on a almost weekly basis that would be awesome , but once a month is more then fine.
Ya they are slow bringing new features, but not necessarily fixes.
Try re-installing the update. Has anyone tried initializing the system and re-installing update 2.00? Or, boot the PS4 in safe mode, and re-install the update that way.
I had the power supply options set to Always and it still doesn't work. Rebuilding database doesn't work for me either. Sony is going to have to release another patch to fix it. They should be use to doing that by now.
Wait people are barley finding this out? This shit been happening to me before this update. What i do is i unplug it then your system will turn back on. So this has been happening way before this update.
Mine had this issue when I first updated and came back home from putting system in standby screen was frooze restarted it and it wouldn't boot back up so I unplugged it and it rebuilt data base and its fine so far.
after the update to 2.0 I noticed that my Vita downstairs wouldn't find the PS4 upstairs. Went upstairs and noticed that the console seemed to be normal (Orange light to indicate in standby). Tried to turn the console on, wouldn't do it. Held my finger over the power button for like 10 seconds. Heard a beep. Console turned on, did a hard drive scan because it says that it wasn't turned off properly. Then started up. Didn't have to rebuild anything.. played my games and then put the console back into rest mode. Haven't checked yet to see if I can get the console out of rest mode normally yet. My only question is, why did Sony feel the need to change the Standby mode? Why try to "fix" what wasn't broken?
What i did notice in the new mode is that in the power settings the console no longer downloads game patches while in rest mode, only OS specific patches. I cant seem to recall, if the PS4 downloaded game updates in stand-by mode before FW 2.0, anyone else noticed that?
My guess is that they've started laying some of the ground work for the sleep mode function that the Vita has that lets you put games into sort of a suspended animation until you come back to it. They may have decided "Rest" vs. "Standby" was a better description of what it's doing.
yep, I could see that actually.
smart thinking bubbles for that!
Sony Release that stability patch.!.!
I think I'll try it until Sony release new patch, turn my ps4 off it's annoy as hell since I can't charge my controller and my head phone while ps4 is off
Got any extra cell phone chargers with a USB jack on it? I've used those before for charging my PS3 controllers and they work well enough. Also, kinda nice that it frees up a USB port on the console, too.
Just had this happen yesterday. Glad that it wasn't just my PS4 dying but a widespread issue. I hope they fix this fast.
I'm getting an XB1. Ever since the update my PS4 has been switching off by itself and freezing. May get another PS4 but not sure. It's unlikely.
So rather than having your still under warranty PS4 replaced free of charge, you would buy a completely different console? That makes sense. /s Edit: I've had this issue, myself. I'll try some of these fixes and see what happens.
You do realise you can get your money back and then buy a different console, right? Anyway I loved my PS4 I'm just not sure if I should switch it out for an XB1 or not...
Didn't know people had issues with this feature. I bought my PS4 around April or so and since then I have never turned it off. I've always had it on this mode. Never encountered any problem so far.
lol knowing sony..the firmware will probably be release next month
I haven't experienced this bug. Does it happen on all PS4s or is it only some? 2.0 has been fantastic for me.
Doesn't work. Standard PS 'big' update, always breaks several other things, were forever waiting for the 0.01 update after the major update. Very tired of Sonys poor quality updates and constant PSN downtime.
I tried the database rebuild suggested by Sony. It didn't work. I set power save USB to Always, then rebuilt the database. Put USB power save back to 3 hour, everything fine now.
I put my PS4 to sleep with the voice commands and had trouble. Had to pull the plug in the back. Using the controller I haven't had any issues.
Only issues I ever had were when I used the web browser and the whole OS became laggy when I exited the browser. But after the 2.0 update I haven't experienced any OS lag which is great. I still think the messages feature is broken though. I have never experienced any other issues except for random PSN errors when PSN goes down for everyone.
I fixed it by disable the "allow ps4 to connect to the internet in rest mode" inside power settings, reboot the console, then enable that same option.
