    I have an external harddrive connected to my wii to load backups and it won't shut off unless you hold the power down on the wii. I'm just wondering if theres some kind of hack or something that allows you to fully turn off the wii (red light) with the wii remote rather then holding the power button on the wii for a few seconds.

    I know this is an old thread, and I can't believe I've only just discovered this now, lol. I've always wondered why it wouldn't shut down fully and have to get up to do it manually every time. I've had no idea there was a setting "hidden" under wiiconnect24. I never bothered going into that as I assumed it was a connection thing.

    Thanks!

    WiiConnect24 isn't even working anymore, they shut down the servers, so the standby connection is useless now.

    Yep I've just read up on that to have more info.

    I just can't believe I've been getting up and manually shutting off my Wii all these years!

    Well better late than never eh.
