    All DSi do that. I think it's bad for your DSi because there's a clear warning that tells you to keep the DSi away from magnets and this is probably the result. I'm not too sure though.

    Not sure, You could try data management and copy your DSI ware games to SD.

    I will look further into this, you may have to contact Nintendo.

    nintendo being a bit careless with the method they use for standby.
    under the ABXY buttons is a little magnet switch.(under the X button for a phat)
    if this switch is "hit" by the force of another magnet it will tell the DS the lid is closed, putting it into standby.
    a bit careless of them is that they used a magnet as switch.
    that means (as is the case here) that if the bottom of the switch comes in contact with the back of the lid's magnet it will cause a standby even when the lid is open.

    this system is used with all DS models, however it doesn't cause problems with a phat.
    most likely because the magnet is better shielded by the casing in a phat.(perhaps they simply forgot to retest the system after both redesigns)
    there's a good chance the new XL DSi won't have this problem either since it's bigger allowing for some more shielding.

    btw: putting 2 DS(i)'s on top of each other is as harmless as keeping the lid of your DS closed when you're not using it.
