    While attempting to fix my grabage disposal this afternoon, I accidentally turned off a circuit breaker in my home and turned it back on while Wii was running on the circuit and now it won't power up AT ALL I'm afraid I fried it somehow. No lights come on, red or green, no noise, no activity. So I guess I have a few questions:

    1. Does it have some kind of internal fuse or circuit breaker that I could reset?
    2. If I leave it unplugged for awhile, will it come back to life?
    3. Could I fix this myself?
    4. Assuming I have to send it back (it's under warranty, in fact I've only had it since Christmas) are the Nintendo police going to come and get me because it's softmodded? Legend of Gamma and Homebrew Channel are on the main page.
    5. Has this ever happened to anyone else or am I the only freaking idiot to fry his Wii?

    God, I hope there's some easy fix to this. Thanks.

    EDIT: Well, apparently unplugging it and letting it sit for 15 minutes solves the problem. Sorry for the stupid questions...My wife was PISSED though, she likes to Wii Yoga in the morning.
