One of the features of PlayStation Plus is that it automatically updates certain things.

 

It can automatically sync your trophies, it can also download patched for games, download the latest firmware update etc, all without you having to do anything.

 

You can turn your TV on when this is happening, but it would be unwise to stop what it is doing for fear of corrupting the data.

 

When it;s done it's 'thing', go to the XMB menu then from there you can adjust the settings for PS PLus auto-update, mine is set for between 1am & 4am.

 

Hope this helps.

The Plus automatic updates feature is capable of installing game updates and demos automatically, but it will never install a System update automatically.  Sony won't install one of those until you accept the updated license agreement.  Automatic updates will download a new System update when one is available, but you have to start the install manually.  Therefore, Automatic Updates can't cause a problem with the PS3 System software, because it never changes the PS3 System software.
