First go to the [Settings] menu and select [Power Save Settings] followed by [Set Functions Available in Rest Mode]. Choose [Stay Connected to the Internet] and press X to place a checkmark beside this setting. Also check the box marked [Enable Turning On PS4 from Network]. Now go back to the [Settings] menu and select [System] followed by [Automatic Downloads]. Set a checkmark beside [System Software Update Files] to get system updates as soon as they’re available. You can also check the setting to install system software updates automatically but be aware that installation will restart your PS4. If a game is running when you enter Rest Mode any unsaved progress in that game will be lost when system software is automatically installed, so be sure to save often. Check the box marked [Application Update Files] to get the latest update files for games that are installed on your PS4. With these settings in place your PS4 is ready to accept Automatic Downloads when the system is in Rest Mode or when it’s powered on. To enter Rest Mode press and hold the PS button to view the Quick Menu Select [Power] and select [Enter Rest Mode]. Updates that download while the PS4 is powered on may prompt you to restart the system or to close the application that needs to be updated. You can also remotely start downloads to your PS4 when you’re away from your system so your games can be ready to play when you get home. Start by visiting the PlayStation Store in either a web browser or in the PlayStation App. Sign in to your PlayStation Network account and go to your Download List. Use the [Download to your PS4] button that’s next to the game that you want installed on your primary PS4. If your PS4 is in Rest Mode the remote download should start right away. Otherwise the remote download will begin after you power on your PS4 system. And that’s how automatic downloads work on PS4 systems.
