Default PS3: Downloading and installing.

Not sure if others know this.

If you leave a PSN store download open on the store page (ie. don't press Background Download), it will download and automatically install, in one proces.

With firmware 2.50, you can now start background downloads from the store, upto about 12 items I believe, if you then select Turn Off System (on the XMB, all the way to the left, up the top), it will now prompt you to download and install everything in the queue, and then turn off.

Sweet... I assume the reason it does not otherwise do a combined download/install, is for performance reasons, thrashing the disk for an install, whilst somethinf else is happning (ie. gaming or media playing) could be troublesome.
