Accidentally pressed it, lost an hour or two from my game.


Why does it automatically close software?! Why doesn't it overlay the game with the option to back out or give the option to shut off your software? That would be the smart idea, since pressing the home button doesn't do that. On a handheld putting the power button on the front is not very intuitive, either. Even the time it needs to be held down is less than a second.

? How did you accidentally press it? It requires a fair amount of pressure to press down.

how can you accidentally press and hold a button for 2-3 seconds, that less than a sec is BS or your system is malfunctioning, send it back.
Screenshot it or it didnt happen.

I did that once when I first got it. Why they put the power button where the start and select buttons used to be I'll never know.

Just like how any button can be hit on accident.

Happened to me too when I grabbed my 3DS without concentrating.

I sure learned my lesson!

That's a big exaggeration, I just timed it. Less than a second.

No, try timing it yourself.

Whoa, whoa. Someone's actually defending this poor design?

I bet the screen scratching is our fault too.
