People actually never turn their system off?

What's wrong with you? That's a ton of stress being put on the system.

I know. I think it's weird too. I turn mine off just to have peace of mind of clearing out the RAM cache.

I assume TC means overnight when not using the system or taking it outdoors.

seriously don't get why people do this. i mean i go through spaces of a couple days at a time where i have no interest in playing the 3ds. i'm not just gonna leave it on for those 2 days, if i'm not playing it on that particular day you bet its being turned off.

I use mine as a mp3 player because I'm too cheap to buy a proper one so I use mine on a daily basis on the ride to college. I think my system has been off maybe 3 times total since launch.

I think it's just a younger generation of people who didn't grow up when leaving electronics on indefinitely would cause them to eventually either wear down and break or just something glitch with the OS.

Either way, regardless of Nintendo saying "Hey! It's okay, have a cradle! We support it," (with no motive for you to need to buy another one wink wink) it is just straight up less strain on any electronic to not have it on all the time.

I turn mine off every night before I go to bed.
