Hello, when you launch a high demanding resources game, the CPU and GPU will run on low power during startup and loading screen but when the game starts, they switch to full power mode very quickly and breakers doesn’t like that very much especially in countries with 120V.

The CPU and GPU can work at low power depending on the game, that’s why you can play for 5 hours without a problem but sometimes some location in the game needs to be rendered more than others which means the PS5 will consume more power during that and eventually trigging the breaker.

The only solution is to change the breaker and to make sure that the house wiring is rated to handle the right amount of current otherwise you can melt the wires or set your home on fire.
