    As the title says, every time I make the PSP go in Sleep Mode, it turns off completely rather than saving my progress to resume it later, it's always fully charged too.

    It's a PSP 3000 w/ CFW 6.20 PRO-C2.

    Is there some sort of fix for this?

    You sure you slided the power switch quickly only? not keeping it held? Because that shouldn't happen for sure :huh:

    Obviously.

    It still turns off, I'm not joking either.

    I had a PSP 1000 before and it didn't have this problem.

    I'm relatively certain this is a hardware issue, but try something relatively basic first: delete the seplugins folder from your PSP and reinstall the CFW from scratch. This will help eliminate the possibility that a rogue plugin is at fault. If that doesn't help, well, unfortunately, it's likely a hardware issue that will only be remedied by actually opening the PSP, figuring out what precisely is wrong with the switch, and replacing pieces as needed.

    To note, I had a bit of a lemon of a PSP I bought with the same issue (among others). I never was able to properly diagnose all of its issues, but I was reasonably certain that due to the nonfunctional UMD drive, the PSP had likely been dropped while in sleep and something broke by the power switch.

    Yeah I guess this is a hardware problem since I did what you said, not going to bother opening it.

    Thanks for the answer.
