Anyone else's 3DS fail to wake from sleep mode often?

#1iammaxhailmePosted 5/2/2012 3:10:59 PM
Often when I open it after it's been closed a while, it doens't wake up. The blue power light just pulses and nothing happens. I close and reopen it, I leave it open, I leave it closed, I remove the cart, nothing seems to help. My only option is to hold the power button until it goes off and then turn it on. This often causes my to lose all my steps for the day, too. It doesn't always happen, but it happens too many times for it to be a one time/rare glitch.

Any idea what's causing this?

No idea. Never had that issue before.

As a Japanese person, I find it amusing the number of times I've been called a weeaboo or similar on this site. If only I started counting all those years ago.

I tried to find a better way to write the top title, but I couldn't ;_;

This happens to my 3DS after I leave it charging at night, but I think it's a battery problem in my 3DS or probably because I dropped it a few times.

It could be because of everything you have saved on your SD card. Everytime you wake it up from sleep mode/return to the home menu, the 3DS basically has to reload/start up. If you have a lot saved/a lot of apps to load, it'll take a bit.

Mine does this pretty often and I have to hold the power button for quite some time for it to shut off.

I know what you're saying, but this isn't it. The SD card loading takes ten seconds at most. I've left it open after being asleep for an hour and there's no sign it's on at all besides the blue light pulsing.

For me, I just hold the power button for 2-3 seconds and then let go. Sometimes it doesn't go off for 10-15 seconds after that, but it always does go off eventually.
