Does it service the queue at night? As I said upthread, it would happily let me install a game from iOS, but it only did it at 3am. I haven't experimented with the queue, as I ended up putting it back into Putin apologist / climate change denier mode.

Not for me it didn't (new game installs).  It just stopped when the console went into idle sleep and didn't start again until I switched it on in the morning.  An install initiated from the XBOX app on Android also did nothing until I switched the console on though those actions were early afternoon and late evening, they did not cross 3am

No just updates only, but it looks like updates that it initiates itself if you have that option enabled. I don't, and manually set a bunch going yesterday and turned it off. They immediately shut down and resumed when I powered up later that day.

Switched on my SeriesX this morning for a quick hour of elden ring before work and it immediately kicked off a minor update download.  WTF? why did that not come down overnight? Is there some additional limitation on what updates are done in Eco mode?

The update was only released this morning.
