    Do you leave your ps4 on standby mode?

    do you have it in standby mode and does it upload data to cloud automatically like on ps3 cos I cant see an option for this in settings? Also mine is in standby this morning with orange light on but its making a noise similar to when its turned on.i was wondering if its uploading/downloading but I turned it on and there is nothing in the notifications saying its doing anything. Does anyone elses ps4 sound like this in standby? thanks

    I know it updates in standby mode, mine downloaded a few game patches while in standby mode. I don't know if it uploads anything from standby mode though. And mine is quiet too, doesn't make any noise in standby mode.

    Cheerz Matt that helps a lot,i'll try that and see if my data uploads to cloud automatically,I do it manually but if it does it automatically then at least if I forget to do it my saves will be safe.

    I keep mine in standby mode for remote play. I tend to use remote play quite a bit.

    Exactly. Only if I'm downloading a game or something. Otherwise all the way off.

    i dont see a reason why to keep it off entirely.

    automatic patch downloads, remote play, being able to download stuff while im out, etc.
