Default Sleep Mode

When playing Mario Kart 7, I shut my 3DS. I forgot that I had not powered it off, and began charging it. I left it charging for about 48 hours.

I have two questions:

1. Was my 3DS in sleep mode during this time? (Mario Kart 7 was still active, but the system was shut.)

2. Has this mistake damaged my 3DS at all?

Yes, your system was in sleep mode, this is a perfectly normal and acceptable way of using the feature. No need to worry.
Fantastic, na magic!

Tekka is correct. It has no damage to your 3ds in any way. Did this all the time for my psp (took me 2 months before I figured out to turn it 100% off without taking the battery out)

I think 3ds is designed for this
