    Stand By Mode

    Ok I have just read about all the bother of the recent 2.0 update and subsequent 2.01 fix.

    I very rarely if ever use standby mode (rest mode). I decided to use it today because I was going out. I left the house and came back about 2 hours later. My girlfriend reckons the orange light was on when she entered the room the PS4 was in. I came to check on it about 10 minutes after that and the orange light was out.

    I have just loaded up Battlefield 4 and everything looks ok (touch wood). I have had the 2.01 fix installed since 5 November. Has anyone experienced the orange light going out? Not sure if this means anything of any significance. Is it safe to use rest mode now?

    Nightmare. Hope everyone else gets sorted that has had any problems.

    I have experienced this.

    I went to mess around the power saving settings and changed USB mode to always. Gonna wait till after work to check if it worked.

    Admartian I thought about power save settings but the only thing I think I have changed in menus recently is to do with the voice command setup. I just realised that although my PS4 had downloaded the 2.01 update it HADNT installed it!! I thought the PS4 installed updates automatically? What a pain!!

    Just checked and my orange light is out too even though it's in rest mode. I have my USB ports set to 4 hours. Guess that is when the orange light goes off.

    And you confirmed 2.01 is installed?

    Try usb setting to "Always" and re-tick "connect to the internet" (if you haven't already). Cos I had it on before the update and it was off afterwards (2.00).

    I never use rest mode so i didn't have that problem. I thought 2.01 took care of it for people and i got the 2.02 update today. Anyone know what that update was for specifically?

    What happens if when the light is out you then plug in the controller to charge? Does it come on again?

    I always kept my PS4 in stand by mode until the last month or so when I would try to turn it on via the controller, the orange light would just flash forever and it would never actually boot up. So, the 5 or so times I tested it, same thing happened and I would have to unplug the PS4 to get it to turn back on. It was almost as if I got stuck in boot up mode but never displayed anything on the TV. Albeit now I just power it down entirely.

    Its fine to use rest mode again. As far as I know, no one even bricked a console.
