PS5 is here and it’s time to continue discovering its interface, menus, settings, customization and, in general, all kinds of options with which to configure the new generation console. Therefore, here we leave you a small tutorial on sleep mode.

The video explains how to disable the next-gen console sleep mode. This is particularly important as many users have experienced their consoles shutting down too early and some have even experienced problems charging the DualSense controller.

Therefore, if you prefer dispense with sleep mode for now, this is the way to do it. It doesn’t have much more mystery. You must go to settings from the PS5 main menu. Then select System and then, in the left column, Energy saving.

The menu that appears at that moment will be used to deactivate the console’s sleep mode, as well as to change the time it takes to activate this mode. You can select the time interval that seems best to you or directly, not allow the console to enter this mode.
