Battery went from Full to dead in 12 hours in sleep mode

I've been having that issue too.

The battery on mine drains way too quickly and I only got it in October.
Isn't that right, Zach?

full battery lasts nearly 3 days still with me, wifi on also.

I can only think of two reasons:

System wasn't in sleep mode fully (backround software?)
or magnets

My friend had a glitch where he closed his system in Streetpass Plaza, and it didn't go to sleep. Only reason we realized it was because it was still showing him online in my friend list a couple hours later. His battery was pretty close to drained because of it.

TC, what was the last thing you remember doing with your 3DS last night?

I put it in my 3ds case and went out. It was with me indoors all night while I slept.

I also think when I closed my 3ds earlier that day I was in the wifi menu for code of princess so maybe the system thought it was online or something? At the same time I would think going into standby would cut all ties to being online.

thats what it was, if you leave a game running while in sleep mode drains more battery than reg sleep mode.
Screenshot it or it didnt happen.

oh and for the record, (this is @ post #3), the manual says so, not me.
