    So i just start to think about this. The switch does work as a handheld and runs on battery power.
    So does it have a sleep mode.

    Google around and found this video



    if it doesnt load it the time is 8m 21s to about 8m 40s

    It shows you press the power button and the screen blanks out and it puts it to sleep
    Then pressing the power button again wakes it up and it seems to have a save state menu.

    Seems pretty cool. I wonder if your be able to do this while dock via the OS

    It would be odd for a portable device these days to not have a sleep mode and at minimum a screen blank mode.

    Hopefully it is adjustable as I find the defaults to be a bit aggressive for my tastes. I assume the screen will be off automagically when docked

    I know my Wii U has an auto power down but I guess it doesn't have a sleep mode does it? I am always on my kids to at least press the Home Button to pause the whatever music is looping.

    Hell
    So, it'll be like the PSP where you "power down" the Switch and then resume right where you left off upon turning it back on? That would be pretty cool.

    The 3DS works like that via the home button or closing the lid, right? Although I don't think it is a true power down save state. I have 3 but don't really use it much but the boys do.
