I have been in this Rest Mode crash situation with my PS5 since I got the thing in December. I don't have any external drives plugged in and mine still crashes without fail every time I try to use Rest Mode. I finally gave up a few weeks ago and sent the console in to Sony for repair/replacement after some other users on the Reddit forums did the same. Sony sent them new consoles that don't appear to have the issue, so it seems like it may actually be hardware-related rather than software related. Hoping I get my replacement soon...

I bought my PS5 in March and have stopped using rest mode for the same reasons. Now I never use rest mode and pause all downloads before turning off just to be sure. One thing that I’ve learned after reformatting my drive so much that it broke is that USB 3.0’s download way faster than 2.0 even though it’s still HDD.
