If you have always on power mode you can earn this over night if you don't quit the game and leave your player in first person

*Thanks everyone for confirming this works. However it would seem you need to be in a multiplayer lobby.
xxxDarkRuleRxxx I can confirm this.
This is how I did it:
- Start a multiplayer session and go in First Person mode.
- Power down the Xbox One (Xbox must be in Instant On mode).
- Leave it overnight >15 hours.
- Poweron the Xbox One and Start GTA.
- You get a error message that you disconnected from the online session and then the Achievement unlocked.

fighterx93chipp Yeah I was freaking out that it randomly gave it to me but then realized it's in power mode or whatever glad this happened to someone else. So I too can confirm that this works. And yes I was in a multiplayer match when I powered off my xbox. Also for anybody wondering... You can power off using the controller if your settings are show. As above

Mistwalker45 if you leave it over night i tried that method of sticking in a USB charger left it on over night in single player and found out the next day it had only tracked 4 hrs even though i left it on for 15+ hours what gives ??

The John Fash Hi 'Mistwalker'. I'm starting to believe that this method only works when you sit idle in a multiplayer mode. Sorry about that

DrSchmock You cant do the method with the usb in the mp.because when you are not active the server will kick you out and say you are inactive!have to try it with the shut down method.

CsGamer3000 I can confirm this. It's works.
2 nights on. You can see you're status in the online game mode by the stats.

IXI FalcoN Worked for me too! Did it over 2 nights in an online lobby, achievement popped right as I brought up GTA V from suspend/resume. Definitely beats having to let the console run for 15 hours.

NitrousSpeed For Example I'm in an online invite only lobby in 1st person and then power the console off and come back after 8 hours then resume GTA V will the game show that I was in 1st person for 8 hours or how does that work? Please let me know thanks

IK UNKN0WN IK Yeah I believe this doesn't work anymore I've done this for 2 days in a row left my console for like 12 hours plus each time I come back on sign in and then click gta it starts the game up fresh like it was never played might have to do the use the play and charge kit to do it now

lll GAMBLER lll I tryed the method from xxxDarkRuleRxxx and when i start my console at the next day it shut down the game complete. When i launched the game and checked my stats it says 1h14m38s. So now i try it with a rubberband on my right stick Walking circles in my Apartment to avoid kicked out of session. But i dont know why it resets the timer. i tryed it already in singleplayer with a usb cable and racked up a time from 10h45m but the i switched of my console complete not in instand power on mode and it resets my time again to 1h.

Clap That Fool I dont think this method works anymore. I tried DarkRule's method as well twice and let it sit overnight both for longer than 15 hours and it does not seem to register the time.

Tom0x56 This worked for me. The achievement popped yesterday after leaving the game in suspended mode per xxxDarkRuleRxxx's instructions. When I started online mode, I started an Invite Only lobby and just stayed in my apartment.

SolaceConquest Doesn't work anymore, left mine on instant on, turned console off whilst at work/overnight too. No achievement.
