    Just wondering... I don't like receiving messages from Nintendo and holding the power button for 4 seconds every time I want to shut off my Wii.

    If I turn off WiiConnect24, what will be disabled?

    AFAIK, it's:
    Nintendo Messages
    Other Channel Messages

    Not Sure About:
    Wifi
    Channels needing wifi like everybody votes

    Channels that use it like news and weather just don't scroll the updates in the banners. But wifi works fine, I never have connect24 on. Its a complete pile of shit

    Use priiloader to enable WiiConnect "ignore standby" in the hacks.

    Aw, sweet. I'ma gunna turn it off now.

    Does turning it off turn off messages from friends too? What happened if I got a message from a friend? (Wii Message Board)
