How to disable Rest Mode on the PS4 Pro

Rest mode on the PS4 is a great mode that allows you to place your PS4 Pro or even PS4 is a low power mode in which you can still charge your Controllers and access your system quickly next time you need it. The thing is though if you press the power button you go straight into rest mode and the option is the first thing that’s shown on the power menu. In today’s article I will be showing you How to disable Rest Mode on the PS4 Pro.

This is great for cases where you do not use rest mode and for safety reasons you always power down your PS4 Pro completely after using it. In my case I charge my controllers as shown here and have no need for the mode so I turn it off completely so when I press the power button my system powers off and in the power menu you have only the power off option.

What device does this apply to?

This applies to the PS4,PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro respectively. So it should basically work on any PS4 you have that’s updated.
