    Well, this is unfortunate... Recently, my DS Lite has been randomly shutting off on me and is becoming quite a problem. It happened about a month ago but it was only once and I paid it no attention. However, it is becoming alot more frequent nowadays and I was wondering if anyone knew a solution for it. I noticed the problem more when Yoshi Island DS was released, but I'm sure this is just a coincidence (...hopefully). If this helps, I use a M3 Mini-SD and my DSL was recently flashed (Sometime this weekend). I would really appreciate a solution to this as the random power offs plus the random freezes of Akumajou Dracula makes me want to smash my window [​IMG] .

    I've seen something similar to this on a DS-Phat. The cause of the random
    shut offs were due to a bad bat or bat connection. As the DS got hotter the
    more persistent the problem became. It's possible you're having the same
    problem.

    Hm, well I noticed that it only shuts off while using my M3 and when pressing the Y or B button, so I guessing that it's not excatly 'random'...

    So, uh... any suggestion would be very nice [​IMG].

    Try swapping your battery with your friend's one and play a few hours. If there will be no problem, then you need a new battery.

    Would a DS Phat battery work? I don't have any available friends with DS Lites...

    No, it won't.
