Does it really make that much of a difference. I've touched the silver part after it had been microwaved and it didn't seem that hot. Would a Hot Pocket cooked without be limp and soggy?

They're still edible they don't get soggy. Its more the bread is soft than crusty

It's called a CRISPING SLEEVE for a reason.

Without it, it doesn't get Crispy.

You'll have a Soggy pocket.

If you don't place it in there when you cook it they come for you when you sleep.

Where do you think they get the meat for all those hot pockets?

The sleeve makes a difference, but it doesn't make it anywhere near crispy. I cook my Hot Pockets for about 40 seconds in the microwave with no sleeve. Then dunk them in my Fry Daddy at 350 for about 1:30. They taste better, and have an awesome, real crispiness to them. If I had no fry daddy I would definitely go with the sleeve. The slight difference it makes is enough to warrant using them.

One thing I've noticed is that all the classic goodies that used to be great when cooked in a conventional oven now suck when cooked in a conventional oven, due to being 'reformulated' for the microwave, yet they still suck when cooked in a microwave, just less so than before.
