A question about SpotPass

#1r0ldyPosted 7/11/2011 2:36:44 PM
I just bought a 3DS + Ocarina of Time 3D. I play with the 3D effect at its maximum intensity, and the screens at its brightest. Wifi off.

I realize this drains the battery a lot faster. So when I'm done playing I save my progress and turn the 3DS off completely. I don't put it to sleep.

Now my question is, is that the only way to receive SpotPass notifications? By putting it to sleep with the Wifi on? Because I've noticed I only receive updates to my Pokedex 3D app whenever I do that.

yes.

Just leave it closed in sleep mode and keep it on the charge cradle when not in use. I haven't turned my 3DS off since early April.
