    I've seen pics of the Wii with the blue light on and it looks awesome. Is there any easy way to turn the blue light on mine without having to bother to get someone to send me a message?

    No it's not possible... Unfortunately. Not without a hardware modification (relatively easy) but that would void your warranty.

    Guess I'll get my friends to send me tons of messages every day when they all get a Wii for Christmas [​IMG]

    My wii turn the blue off when I enter in message board even if I don't read any message.
    so the "don't read your mail" don't work.

    And it even stop the light when the Wii is powered on.

    You can send yourself messages from your email account to manipulate the light...

    You have to add an email address to your address book. Then an email will be sent to that account explaining how it works, and when you answer to that email, the message magically pops up on your Wii.

    I've got mine put on when I want it.

    Just have your Wii send a message to your email address, then reply back. Your LED will go on and stay on until you open up the message you sent yourself.

    Dunno about all this, just checking the messageboard in general stops it because it didn't for me.
