This question already has an answer here:
My console is set to use the Instant-On power mode and I’ve checked the box allowing it to “download updates automatically” when in this mode.
However, when I launch games and apps, I still see the “Oh, shoot. We need to update first” screen quite often. I’ve also noticed that items in my download queue are not completed while in Instant-On mode.
Is this setting really just for system updates? Or does it apply to app/game updates as well? Is it available outside the United States or something silly?
Edit: My console does go to sleep so that is not the issue.
