When the PlayStation 4 saw firmware version 2.00 release, some users were affected by a slew of errors whenever they booted up from rest mode.
If you own a PlayStation 4, you know that the console pushes you to rest it rather than shut it down in its UI messaging. As such, a lot of gamers keep their machine in rest mode for constant updates and quicker startup. It’s convenient.
Some of those users were reporting problems with firmware version 2.00. PlayStation acknowledged the issues and shot out this tweet.
We're aware of issues happening post PS4 2.00 firmware, including some freezes and boot errors. Working to resolve ASAP, will update soon.

Now, version 2.01 is rolling out and it specifically addresses the boot from rest problems. Here’s the new tweet from late last night.
PS4 software update v2.01 is coming soon, and will address issues some users have encountered when powering on the system from Rest Mode

The update was already available on my machine when I fired it up this morning, so I imagine there’s a good chance you already have it as well. Download it, and hopefully you can resume booting from rest without a single issue.
Yes, I want that convenience back as well.
