    My wii seems to get Hot just around the SD slot area when i turn the wii off and the light is Orange. When i hold the button down to turn the light red every thing stays cool. is there a way to set the wii to shutdown completely or do i need to hold the power button down everytime?

    With orange light the wii stays connected to the internet and eats the same 20W as it does while playing. Turn the check for updates off.

    This way it needs 20 times more power than real standby. Yes i tested it with an electr. ammeter(hope this is the correct term). While playing or in orange standy the wii needs ~20W and in real standby ~1W.

    I read the Wiki on the Wii that It only takes 2 Watts while in standby. 20 Watts while running.

    With orange standby light the wii becomes hot. The reason for this is, it is eating 20 Watts. Measure it yourself if you don't believe me. During measuring, i couldn't notice a difference in power consumption between orange standy and playing.

    PS:
    Wikipedia speaks of 18, 9.6 and 1.3, but i myself got 20, 20, 1.

    So far no one have fried their wii by leaving stand by mode on.
    So it doesn't really matter.

    Don't you have to pay for electricity in the USA too? Did you ever hear of environment protection?

    Custom fan uses the power thats connected to the DVD drive I believe and not the fan's power port so it will always be on while in standby mode.

    It says this:

    "Do not plug the Wiisper fan into the OEM fan plug. Use only the supplied cable.'

    Or far easier: Just shut change the damn setting of Wii 24 connect so that it only connects when the Wii is really on. It will save your wii and your electricity bill. (Seems like electricity is far to cheap in the USA o.O )

    Far too cheap and a nation of people not caring about peak oil...

    They'll soon start to care when their 10litre cars get banned. ;-p

    WiiConnect24 is the most pointless thing ever, may as well shut it off.

    No it's still dirt cheap. They are just crying because it used to cost like nothing and now it costs something. If you want expensive gas come to germany. [​IMG]

    LOL, sorry - 30gallons (or whatever that olden days measurement system is - remember the 70's when people still used it? ;> ).

    Then again, americans have a different gallon to the rest of the world - you know how they like to be different.

    LOL 20clarky - shh, don't say things like that, the "patriots" may accuse you of being a terrorist and shoot you. I think petrol is still very cheap in amerika compared to most other places - just more expensive than it was.
