While Hamdi's response is very useful, the PS5 is only rated to draw >2A at full power (201W). Most residential circuits have 15A breakers, however many home builders skimp on wiring and run one large circuit for multiple rooms, which is OK for code but considered bad practice. When the breaker pops, see what other devices lose power and check their wattage to get the amperage (W / V = A). If possible, try to locate a separate circuit for some appliances or devices, or call an electrician to re-wire the room so it has it's own circuit for wall outlets.
Another possibility is that the breakers are simply getting worn out. Old breakers trip easier than their rating, eventually they will get to a point where they cannot be reset.
Most breakers operate as thermal switches. There is a bimetallic strip which the current flows through, but if you try to pull more amperage than the rating, the metal will get hot and deform, allowing the spring-loaded switch to slam to the OFF position. Over time the constant expansion and contraction within the switch fatigues the mechanical components and prevents the switch from latching into the ON position.
There are more expensive breakers that operate using electromagnets instead, which makes them more durable. In this case, drawing more current through the breaker increases the strength of the electromagnet until it is able to pull the latch, causing the breaker to trip.
Example: I have a portable AC unit that will trip the breaker in my den. I discovered the nearby bathroom has it's own circuit, but the den shares with 2 other rooms and the garage.. So purchased a 30', 20A appliance extension and ran it to the bathroom that had it's own circuit. The AC unit draws 11A, 13A Peak, but never trips the breaker anymore.

Same issue here, it’s driving me nuts. I have a series x and it has never done this once.
