Is it safe to download games in Rest Mode?


New Member
I just got my PS5 yesterday! And I haven't been using Rest Mode because of the apparent issues around it (has there been a fix?)

So my question is, how do you guys download games if you aren't using Rest Mode? Because after a while, the PS5 will enter Rest Mode automatically (I have all of the Rest Mode features turned off too). It will also enter Rest Mode when I turn off my TV.

Is Rest Mode safe for downloading/updating games? Is that what you all do?

Also, if not using Rest Mode, do you just leave the console on when charging your controllers?
