Another PS5 bug is here, and users are encountering the PS5 Rest Mode Crashing Issue, which is a bit of a mess. As the PS5 is new in the market, plenty of game bugs or errors appear to the users. Meanwhile, the PS5 system has its own set of errors or crashing issues, which is unbearable. Now, if you’re also facing the rest mode crashing issue, check out this article to possibly fix the issue.
It seems that with every generation release, gaming consoles have multiple issues with game compatibility, previous generation controller compatibility, saved game data transfer issues, game crashes, performance issues, and a bunch of error lists. Though the Rest Mode is available on PS4, PS5 users aren’t finding it useful due to game crashes or even loss of saved game progress.
How to Fix PS5 Rest Mode Crashing Issue
Plenty of PS5 users have reported the same problem whenever they put their PS5 console into the Rest Mode; it crashes the system or game, which leads to the database rebuild. Sometimes it can also automatically turn off the console forcefully.
But the most irritating thing is that the Rest Mode crashing issue permanently causes the saved game data to be lost. You must play the game session or checkpoint again to save the data. Meanwhile, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Godfall, Demon’s Souls, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players are complaining mostly.
Though PS5 users can’t save game data to USB thumb drives, having a PlayStation Plus subscription pack will do the job. But losing the saved game data is not acceptable at all, and it ruins the gaming experience too on a next-gen costly gaming console.
It’s also worth noting that Insomniac James Stevenson has responded on a tweet.

However, there is no official acknowledgment provided from Sony PlayStation yet. We can expect that developers will try to fix this issue quickly. So, you may ask what to do right now temporarily to avoid the crash or losing saved game progress. Well, let’s take a quick look below:
1. Disable Rest Mode
You can turn off the Rest Mode from your PS5 console until there are any official patch update releases to fix the crashing issue.
- Go to the Settings menu from the home screen.
- Under System Settings, choose Power Saving.
- Choose ‘Set Time Until PS5 Enters Rest Mode’.
- Select ‘Don’t Put in Rest Mode.’
- Once done, reboot your console, and check the crashing issue again.
2. Shut Down PS5 Instead Of Rest Mode
It can also possible that if you don’t want to disable the Rest Mode on your console then try to turn off the console.
So, you don’t need to put it on your system in the Rest Mode. Try turning your console off completely instead of the rest or sleep mode until it gets fixed.
