    Okay, so "sleep mode"... Here are a couple of question:
    1. Is it possible to disable the 3ds going into sleep mode whenever it is closed or sleep slider is activated?
    2. What happens with the processor in sleep mode (underclocked, core disabled?)
    3. Is it possible to play audio in sleep mode (not 3ds closed no sleep mode)
    4. Is it possible to detect button input in sleep mode

    This might not be of much help, but...when you try to put the 3DS into sleep mode while playing a GBA game, all that happens is the screen dims and the sound is shut off. The game is still running, and button presses are still logged, but it just looks like the system is sleeping.

    Well actually there is a way to do number 3 and that is to get a R4i.

    But that's AGB_FIRM. It does this because the GBA didn't have sleep mode.

    That keeps the DS awake, the blue LED stays on solid.

    There is. The 3DS audio application allows you to close the lid and the music keeps playing if you have a headset plugged in. (Put a mp3 file on the root of your SD and play it)

    Is the light on 3DS fading? If not, it's not in sleep mode.

    Can't try that anymore (3DS ribbon cable is broken so I jammed the lid) so you would need to test it for yourself. But if I recall correctly, it did.

    Actually yes, the 3DS Music app does this.

    EDIT: Seems this was already said. I believe the whole 3DS system keeps going as normal, just the screen is off though and nothing is really sleeping.
