    Evening all,

    I bought this external hard drive a few weeks ago for my PS4 Pro and it was a breeze to set up and is working great............ mostly.

    No matter what my rest mode settings are, the HDD always stays on. Even when it’s set to never supply power to usb. Not sure how that’s even possible.
    I’ve tried every port, but no joy.

    It’s annoying because I always leave the console in rest mode for updates, etc.

    Anyone any ideas? Seems the common problem is for the HDD to turn off in rest mode, rather than this way round.
