getting the ps3 to turn off automatically after download

12 Replies 8,392 Views Created 16-10-2008

Hi Guys,

 

I have downloaded the firmware 2.50 and luckly no problems with that. However it said in the blurb that you can set the ps3 to turn itself off after a download is complete. I cannot find this option anywhere.

 

I have been to power save settings and it isnt there, only the option to turn the ps3 off after a period of inactivity. I have tried turning the PS3 off whilst an item is downloading but this just turns it off straight away.

 

What am I doing wrong?? help!!

I think you have to try and turn it off whilst it's downloading using the power icon under the users section.

When you start a download isnt there a box to tick to turn the playstation off after the download has finished the same as with firmware downloads i havent checked, but i though it would be like that.

I would have thought that too but when I start a download it just has "download in background" as always... nothing about switch off.... I will check the user icon tonight as per what tom said...

After starting the download, go back to the XMB, select the Power Off option and select the option to turn off after the download has completed.

Is that the same as the new power save options that include turning the pads off?

No.  It's the Power Off option at the top of the User List.
