System automatically switches to Sleep Mode

Closing the Nintendo DS Lite activates a magnetic switch located near the Start and Select Buttons through the right speaker causing the system to go into Sleep Mode.

  • First make sure there are no magnets (e.g. from speaker cabinets) located near the Nintendo DS Lite and if necessary, move the Nintendo DS Lite to an area that is not affected by magnetic interference.
