The latest Xbox Insider update will see the Xbox Series X|S consoles automatically update to use its Shutdown energy-saving option, saving up to 20X the power compared to Sleep mode.

While in its Shutdown energy-saving mode, the Xbox Series X|S can still complete overnight updates to the system, games, and apps, and it will not impact the console’s performance.

As part of the update, the new Active Hours setting will be automatically enabled, allowing you to boot your Xbox quicker from Sleep.

The new options have come when the cost of living increases globally, and we assess and try to reduce our environmental impact.
