    Wondering if there is a way to close games instead of having them suspend when I exit them?

    Reason being I want to swap in and out my Acekard, but when the game is suspended it will freeze up the 3ds and a Hard reboot is needed!

    Anyone have any ideas, and lets get this out of the way in case im stupid.. I did not read the manual!

    Peace!

    Your house, robbing your stuff
    Home button, then go to the game icon and in the lower left part of the touch screen it will say X close or something like that. Press that and it shuts the game off.

    Instead of pressing "close" after suspending a game, you can just press 'X'.
    ...I know, this is somewhat useless advice, but I find pressing the X-button to be much more comfortable than having to grab the stylus and poke the "Close"-button. ^-^

    ...also, manuals.

    Once you get back to the menu, press 'X' and the game will close.

    To close without having to suspend first, you can hold the power button for a bit. A menu with "Software closed" and the option to return to home menu or power off should appear.
