    So I don't like leaving my Wii on standby because it continues powering my external HD but I'm also lazy and don't want to have to walk ALLLLLL the way to my Wii and hold the power button for 3 seconds when I'm done playing. Is there any sort of system hack that just disables sleep so that when I press the power button on my wiimote it shuts my system off entirely? Failing that, does anyone know if a channel exists that just shuts the Wii off? thanks in advance

    If you disable WiiConnect24 it will no longer standby and the wiimote can power it down completely.

    install priiloader, and go to settings, and tell it to ignore the standby mode (something like that, cant remember exactly what its called, but its obvious when u read it)

    really? I could have sworn wiiconnect 24 was off cuz I never get the blue update light. I'm at work now but I'll double check when I get home. Thanks for such quick help Hitokiri.

    @xflak40: Do you know if that setting is available in preloader? I'm mostly lost when modding my wii and can only follow guides without really understanding what I'm doing so I don't want to install priiloader unless I have to.

    should work with preloader also, if the setting is there as an option, enable it, and see if it works

    In your wii settings, under the same thing as WiiConnect24, disable Standby Internet

    I can confirm that both preloader and priiloader have the option and both of them work.
