Short version – just lost 4 hours of Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce when my PSP shut itself off due to how I was playing it. When I play, I cushion the right side of the PSP with my right hand because I have to hit all those buttons, and sooner or later my hand pushes the power switch up and off. Normally this just knocks it into sleep mode, but just a minute ago I lost all my progress in Hu Lao Gate (just beat Lu Bu too, son of a bitch!) when it shut itself off due to me hitting the power button.
Putting it in Hold status just shuts off all the buttons. Is there any way around this?
