    How do you do it? When I press reset it just resets the GC game. Obviously BT doesn't work so the WiiMote doesn't work. Pressing Power did nothing either. I had to hold it down until the Wii shut off.

    Maybe I'm just being stupid.

    In gamecube mode, the wii acts like a real gamecube.

    Reset button is reseting the game.
    There's no power command button, it's a physical button on the Gamecube, so there's no internal listener in the game to detect the power command.
    The Wii is not using a physical power button, so it's sending a command which no function intercepts.

    Edit: I guess I was wrong, it should turn the wii off correctly.

    Maybe you can try holding the power button on the wiimote to switch off the console, but I don't remember if it works.

    It doesn't since there is no BT on the GC

    Perhaps it would work like the Wii would when you are playing a retail GC game. Eject the disc and then hit reset. So if I eject the Wii game I have in the drive, and hit reset it will reboot the Wii. Guess I will try it out.

    The power button is meant to turn the wii off in gamecube mode. If it doesn't do that when using DML, it's a bug.

    Is DML actively being developed still?

    I'm running the latest build, r44, and it powers down my wii when I press the power button. I would recommend an update.

    Depends totally on the game you are playing.
