    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!

    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.
