when i try to turn the system off, pressing the power button does nothing. even when i hold it for like a minute it does nothing. i would ask what the problem was, but an even stranger thing is that anytime i ask someone to see what's wrong, they press the power button JUST like i did, in the exact same way (holding for 3 seconds at the home menu), and it turned off just fine for them. has this happened to anyone else?

Your 3DS is possessed and is trying to kill you... throw it in a fire.

mine used to randomly require me to press the power button 2 or 3 times to get it to turn on...

haven't noticed it as much lately

Give it a quick press, don't hold it down. Sometimes I need to press it twice, but not too often.
