Most of the gaming consoles and controllers have two modes: on and off. But the new PlayStation 5 comes with an extra mode, called rest mode. Imagine, you are playing a game and you remember to finish important work. What to do now? With PS5, you can put your console in the rest mode and then resume your game.
Rest Mode is just like sleep mode. When you put your PS5 in rest mode, it will save your power. You can use PS5 rest mode without closing your game. In the rest mode, the PS5 console will remain connected to the internet and keep downloading files in the background. The rest mode also allows remote access and USB connection on your Playstation 5.
