Or is it only during 3DS games?

Also can it do it with it closed?

No it can't, it's just on the menus or playing 3DS games. I believe it has to be closed, as well, but I'm not sure.
The pedometer does work while the 3DS is closed while playing a DS game, though.

Recheck what you just typed in the manual. You'll find the correct answers.

It will NOT street pass if:
You are playing a DS game
You are playing a DSiware game
If your system is asleep with a DS/DSiware game running
You have your wifi switch off
You haven't turned on street pass

It WILL streetpass if:
Your wifi switch is on
You turned on streetpass in the options
Your system is asleep (no DS/DSiware games running)
You are playing a 3DS game that doesn't require a wifi connection (ex. Zelda:OoT)

I think that's everything.
