yes, owning both, the vita lasts WAAAY longer when both are put into sleep mode for almost a week under the couch and forgotten about. DS was red lighting shortly after opening it, vita was still good to go.

I wish the Wii and 3DS had auto-off :(

I hate my psp's sleep mode. I can't ever figure out if its off or in sleep, both seem to have the same effect.

Sony systems have longer lasting sleep modes.

3DS talks in its sleep though, which is fun.

Maybe on the Vita, but the PSP's "sleep" mode drains the battery like crazy, in addition to the PSP battery not holding a charge if you don't play it for a while where as the (3)DS batteries can come back to after months of not playing and still be at 100%.

It's not a fair comparison. You can turn the wifi off and the 3DS will last just like a Vita or PSP. With wifi on with a Vita or PSP in sleep the wifi isn't actually doing anything. On the 3DS it's trying to street/spot pass, so it's not really sleeping it's just got the screen off.

My new 3DS XL was on 2 bars of battery at midnight last night. It was red (not blinking) when I woke up at 6:30. Wifi was turned off.

My Vita was asleep for ~2 weeks, wifi on, and still has half of its battery left.

Considering getting a charging cradle for my XL to make it a little easier to keep that sad battery topped off.

Yep, though the 3DS and DSi get much better if you just shut off the Wireless.

The Vita certainly has a better sleep mode than the 3DS and DS, but the PSP's was the worst of all.
