The 3DS saves power through the use of its mutant abilities and utility belt.
I'm clever, vaguely feminine, a vampire, and I wield Dice. PH33R.
The DS and PSP are both outstanding systems. Wally the Equality Weasel says so.

I rarely turn power-saving mode off. It makes a noticeable difference, along with turning wireless off.
Play games, not systems. There are people who like games that you don't, grow up.

When the image on screen is darker, the LCD displays a slightly brighter version of that image while at the same time lowering the brightness of the backlight behind the image. So, for example, if the screen were showing a dark grey image, then the LCD would show a light grey image but turn the backlight down so it looks dark grey.

One of the biggest side-effects of this is a noticeable loss of contrast. Even the horizontal lines in the Screen Brightness menu seem to disappear when you turn Power-Saving on. Whites can no longer be white.

Go to "Friend list", then go to settings, then "Friend Notifications Settings", and toggle it from there.
The Gamecube was totally underrated.
