    Im using an m3 real and with isakureal (sakura while playing so far). Looks like if Im playing a game and shut the lid, power is still being consumed. Do any of the flash carts (or is it a firmware feature which would mean I have hope), support power saving when the lid is shut?

    the game does pause. But power consumption seems quite high

    Power consumption is reduced, yes but not to the extent it can last 2 hours longer. My EDGE got no problem whatsoever except with RAM-consuming homebrews (ironically, I don't own RAM pak, that's the reason), however, my R4 1.18 was vulnerable to freezing whenever I close the lid. Not everytime, but with high-power game like CAstlevanias it's quite vulnerable

    CycloDS has a battery saver feature no one knows how it works but it saves a decent amount of power [​IMG]
