Sony’s president of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida announced through Twitter that when a title is bought through the Playstation smartphone app, the console will wake up to initiate the download and will turn itself off after its completion.
@SyriasSerj When you buy a PS4 game on smartphone, it will wake your PS4 up to start downloading the game. PS4 goes back to sleep after that
