Can you download games wile the Xbox One is turned off like PS4 can?

When I put my PS4 into rest mode, it keeps downloading games that I had started downloading. I can also download games using the app or online store and they download to the system when the console isn’t turned on. Can the same thing be done with the Xbox One? I have started some game downloads and when I turn the console off, the games don’t continue downloading.

Yes, you can do the same thing with the Xbox One. You may have to turn this on from the system settings though as it is not always enabled by default. You will need to modify the power settings to put the console into sleep mode rather than fully power off when you shut the system down. This guide will show you what you need to do to make the Xbox go into sleep
