I understand that this was a problem for the 3DS at launch, but I never had it. I have a PAL launch Aqua Blue 3DS and recently when I tried to put it into Sleep Mode it didn't exit Sleep Mode upon opening the console. Now, whenever I turn on the console, it can only last about 30 seconds before giving me the Black Screen of Death.

Anyone know any fixes or am I better off just contacting Nintendo? It's kind of a bummer because Luigi's Mansion 2 is out in just over a week...

You're better off contacting Nintendo.
Zelda is an ACTION-ADVENTURE, not an RPG!!!
Japan is the center of the gaming universe.
