    Is there any way to disable the sleep mode? Maybe for specific applications? Is there any code to disable it in your own application?

    The main reason is the application "freeShop". But I also want to disable it fully on my console if possible. Or in my own application. Is there any way to do it? Maybe any patch?

    I don't understand what you mean, really. Why would you want to disable it?

    It is just annoying and it seems that the download is sometimes stopping while it moves to sleep mode. Not 100% sure. Maybe this only sometimes occurs.

    I also think other games are pausing while be on sleep mode, right?

    As a workaround for some homebrew applications that don't work properly when the system is slept - and also I guess for some games where you're rewarded for idling.
    And our pink-haired hero doesn't want his screens getting dusty I guess. :P

    Put another 3DS or a magnet on top of it to stop it from going into sleep mode.

    There's no spinning magnetic hard drive in a 3DS.

    @julialy's right, putting a dsi/3ds under the 3ds prevents it from going into sleep mode somehow.

    Don't, it can damage the console. There's a warning from Nintendo not to put it near a magnet.

    Ah, thanks for the reminder. I'm sure I'd have done something stupid.

    It won't. I keep my handhelds on top of each other. Never damaged any of them.

    OK, but a magnet can damage the console. I do the same. Ninty doesn't warn about stacking consoles, so I assume it's fine.

    I mean, why the hell are you telling me not to put a magnet next to it when I didn't say anything about that at all? x.x

    Certain electromagnetic waves can interfere with triggering sleep mode and allow you to close it without it sleeping. It works with home microwaves, just put your console in the microwave after you close the 3ds console and turn on the microwave for however long you want it to cancel out the sleep mode.

    It will cancel out the sleep mode, among other things...

    In Los Santos, GTA: San Andreas.
    I don't think it works like that.
    There's a magnet in the top or lower part of the 3ds. Find it, remove it. No sleep mode ever again .
    Don't do it, it'll waste your battery.

    AFAIK it uses the right speaker's magnet.
