Read on to learn how to enable Microsoft’s Xbox Energy Saver Mode.
Microsoft’s Xbox One gaming console has various useful built-in energy-saving features. In addition to manually turning off the device when it’s not being used, you can enable one of its automated modes and take additional steps to reduce power usage during peak hours.
Instead of simply seeing the Xbox as just another video game, Microsoft has essentially treated it as an all-in-one entertainment center connected to the cloud. With its ability to stream multimedia content, play games, connect with friends online, and even order food from a virtual assistant, the Xbox is more than just a device for playing video games.
What is Xbox Energy Saver Mode And What Does İt Do?
Microsoft recently called on Xbox users to switch to Energy Saver Mode, a power management mode that automatically downloads system and game updates when the console is fully powered off. It’s an easy change and is already available for existing Xbox players. If you’re concerned about your power bill, you should try switching to this mode. The new setting requires 45 seconds to startup, which is longer than Instant On. However, it’s also more environmentally friendly, saving you money on your electricity bill.
Xbox Energy Saver mode will power down your console when you’re not using it. This mode is great for those concerned about the environment and electricity bills. Go to My Games and Apps and select Settings to enable this feature. Then, go to Power mode and hit the toggle. Then, tap on Energy-saving. This will turn on the Energy-saving feature. If you’re concerned about power consumption, choose the standby option and disable the instant-on standby. Then, you’ll have a quick resume feature.
Another big benefit of the energy-saving mode is that it consumes much less power than the instant-on mode. You can turn it off when you’re finished with the game or enable the Energy-saving power mode. Turning off the Instant-On feature saves you much money on your electricity bill. You’ll also be helping the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
In addition to the environmental benefits of the Energy-saving mode, Xbox has also announced new efforts to reduce its impact on the environment. The Xbox energy-saving mode can now download system updates and sleep mode in the background. However, it will also slow down the boot-up time of your console. This isn’t the case with older consoles, though. The most recent generation of Xbox Series XS models has a faster boot time.
If you’d like to save electricity on your Xbox, you should enable the Xbox Series XS’s standby mode. This mode will save the console from using up too much power. It also helps you save electricity on your television. There’s no need to turn off your television, which means you can use the console for longer. You can still play the games you want, but you’ll have to wait for it to switch on.
