    well firstly make sure wiiconnect 24 is off. thats just unnecessarily running heat from ya wii. secondly make sure the air vents at the back aren't blocked or against a wall. thirdly, just give it some time to cool down before you try again. thats about all you can do short of taking it apart and having a look at it. as i said though my diagnosis is just a guess, cause usually when comps/laptops overheat they shut off, and if you turn em on again too soon they will shut off within 5-10 minutes again.

    My buddy has an unmoded wii and he had to send it back for the same reason, aparently the fan stopped working.

    I am wondering... Has anyone knoticed that the Wii gets hot even in (orange) standby mode. Is it suposed to do that?
