Thanks, that's a shame about the lack of a proper sleep mode; it's the first system where I've really felt I could take it anywhere and play for 3/4 minutes while waiting for something, but it'd need a proper sleep mode for that really. (at least some games have one though, and you can quick-save anywhere in the Castlevanias)

Is there a way to turn the screen off to save power? While FFVI (not played the others yet) has a quick-save option, if you're in battle you can only pause, and they can sometimes take a while.
It's basically a "dead" system now really, but there are so many good games available for it.

what big upcoming GB micro games coming. is there any or the system is dead because of the DS [ what would be the point if i am only stuck with the old games ]
Here's my attempt at a photo:
(it's so hard to get the micro and the screen looking decent at the same time, without reflections)
I don't know if we can talk about it here or not; I've heard a lot of micro owners use flash-carts, as it means all they need to take is the system, and they have all their games without swapping carts. This sounds like a great idea, but what's the best to get, and can you transfer the saves off your own carts somehow? I've got 100% saves on most of my games, and there's some that I'm quite far through so I don't want to start over. I assume they must come with some sort of card-reader to transfer your games onto it?
