How to Charge Your PS4 Controllers in Rest Mode
When it comes to gaming, the last thing you want is for your controller to die in the middle of a game. Luckily, you can charge your PS4 controllers even when your console is in rest mode. Here’s how:
Step 1: Enable the Rest Mode setting on your PS4.
To enable Rest Mode, go to the Settings menu on your PS4 and select Power Saving Settings. From there, choose Set Features Available in Rest Mode and then check the box next to Stay Connected to the Internet and Enable Turning On of PS4 from Network.
Step 2: Connect the controller to the USB port.
Connect your controller to one of the USB ports on your PS4 using the USB charging cable that came with it. Make sure that the cable is securely plugged in on both ends.
Step 3: Verify that the charging process has started.
Once you’ve connected the controller, the light bar on the back of the controller should start flashing. This means that the controller is charging. If the light bar is not flashing, double-check that the cable is connected properly.
Step 4: Check the charging status.
To check the charging status of your controller, go to the PS4 Home screen and navigate to the Notifications menu. From there, select Downloads and then choose the Charging status option. This will show you how much battery life is left on your controller and how long it will take to fully charge.
Step 5: Keep your PS4 in Rest Mode.
Once you’ve initiated the charging process and verified that it is working, you can leave your PS4 in Rest Mode. This keeps your console in a low-power state that allows it to continue charging your controller while conserving energy.
Charging your PS4 controller in Rest Mode is an easy way to make sure that your controller is always ready to go when you need it. By following these simple steps, you can keep your controller charged without having to worry about interrupting your gameplay.
