If you bookmark a page and close the lid of the DSi you can leave it closed for as long as you like before reopening and the power-save function works. If however you close the lid on a page that has not been bookmarked then the LEDs glow, as though in power-save mode, but opening the lid again will reveal a DSi shut down. If you reopen the lid after a short interval (10 seconds or so) it still works, but if you leave it longer then you get the shutdown. Normally, you could say that this behaviour is like a real book in the sense that you need to bookmark a page before closing a book too, but the DSi is not a book and should not be limited to the same strictures... ;)

    The relevant devkitPro release was pre-DSi.
    Would be useful to see if lites have such an issue.
