My 3DS has an Off button?
I was forced to take out a mortgage on a house and the only job i could get was from the guy who "sold" me the house.

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'm pretty sure few people in that situation are leaving their systems on 24/7. Most of the people who leave it on actually use it every day. Besides actual games and Street/Spotpass, I use 3DS Sound, so I rarely turn my system off.

I turn mine off if I know in advance that I won't use it for some time (which never happens) or when I want to mess around with the stuff on my SD Card (which regularly happens).

willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that TC leaves his 3DS in sleep mode just like everyone else.

I never turn off my computer, if that makes sense.

I never turn off my Phones or Computers, but it just feels wrong to leave a game system on when not I will use. Hell, I used to manually unplug my PS2, because it felt like it wasn't truly off with the red light showing.

I always turn mine off after I play, unless I'm Streetpassing my brother, or getting Playcoins.

I also find it weird that some people leave their 3DS' on overnight, but to each their own~

Pedometer, Streetpass, and constant Spotpass at home. So no, I do not turn it off, and I try to keep it always on. I do not think it needs rebooting to flush the RAM; I think the OS is efficient enough to only use what it needs at any given time, seeing as it has a rather limited battery life. In fact, I don't believe it can sustain sniffing out for Streetpasses and Spotpasses for a whole day if it's not efficient.
pardon if my posts suck, i post by tapping on the handset button on a one-way analog handset. i saw Hannibal Lecter do it.

There's a sleep mode... I don't think I've turned it off once since I've purchased it.. 1 year later, there's no problems with my 3DS. I also think the OS is efficient enough to handle this... the only type of detrimental impact it might have is on the battery which are replaceable.

I wish there was a sleep mode so I could leave my Wii U perpetually powered on to receive and display messages on that controller... but unfortunately there's not.

I turn mine off every night before I go to bed.
I'm not exactly "normal." Hope this isn't a problem.
Need something to do? Here's a maze:
  1. Boards
  2. Nintendo 3DS
  3. People actually never turn their system off?
