I’m always curious what the proper protocol is for this.

For me it depends on how much I'm using a console. If I'm reviewing a PS4 title and playing every day or so I'll leave it in standby so I can quickly pick-up-and-play. If I'm not in the process of playing anything however I like to shut it off - no use it sucking up power.

I got tired of all the tangled wires behind my TV, so I disconnected my consoles & only set them up when I need them.

Then again, I have few/no new systems; I probably couldn't do this if the systems needed to download updates all the time.

I turn off. Most also get full power-off via extension cord power-switch.
