Where does it "save power"?

The 3DS saves power through the use of its mutant abilities and utility belt.
I'm clever, vaguely feminine, a vampire, and I wield Dice. PH33R.
The DS and PSP are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

I rarely turn power-saving mode off. It makes a noticeable difference, along with turning wireless off.
Play games, not systems. There are people who like games that you don't, grow up.

It makes the screen yellow-ish! =)

When the image on screen is darker, the LCD displays a slightly brighter version of that image while at the same time lowering the brightness of the backlight behind the image. So, for example, if the screen were showing a dark grey image, then the LCD would show a light grey image but turn the backlight down so it looks dark grey.

One of the biggest side-effects of this is a noticeable loss of contrast. Even the horizontal lines in the Screen Brightness menu seem to disappear when you turn Power-Saving on. Whites can no longer be white.

Go to "Friend list", then go to settings, then "Friend Notifications Settings", and toggle it from there.
The Gamecube was totally underrated.
