Putting Pepper to sleep

Sleep mode

While asleep, Pepper is not able to launch any Activity, but is still able to update his system.

Tip: save time on updates, keep your Pepper on and asleep at night.

Between 2 AM and 3 AM, an asleep Pepper checks if an update is available for his system and his applications. New application releases are downloaded and installed, while new release of the system is only downloaded and waits for your agreement to be installed.
