3DS Charging, Sleep Mode, & Battery

Hello all, I'm sure this question is asked constantly, but I was just looking for a little clarification. Alot of people keep saying it is recommended to leave the 3ds in sleep mode all the time, and just putting it to charge on the craddle when it gets low on energy, so my question is: are you supposed to leave the 3ds on sleep mode (Never shut it off) and just charge it when not in use? Could this damage or shorten battery life?

Not at all will it shorten the battery life. You absolutly don't have to leave it in sleep mode all the time.

The 3DS still consumes power in sleep mode, but the maximum battery life only goes down after a very long time.

Leaving it in sleep mode while charging should pose no problems.
