    Today I bought Wii Sports Resort. I played for a while and then turned off my Wii. Since it's on WiiConnect24 mode, the LED was orange, but something struck me as odd.

    After the Wii was off, the console kept on reading the disc. Not sure if it was reading the disc exactly, but it made a light 'FFFFFFFFFF' noise, like when it's reading a disc or when it blows air from the fans.

    I had never noticed it before so I can't say it didn't happen with other games.

    This doesn't happen when the Wii is completely off, AKA when the LED is red.

    Is this normal or should I be worried?
    Could preloader be the culprit here?

    Thanks.

    v0.29 does NOT fix the bug.

    People claim it does, but there have been numerous people saying it isn't working.

    I just ended up uninstalling Preloader. Hopefully, HOPEFULLY there will be a v0.30. Just then I might think about installing it again.

    My Wii did the exact same thing, But i was watching a DVD with Mplayer+ and i turned the Wii off with the controller, I used my xbox to watch the other *Mplayer annoyed me* DVD when i went to turn everything off i noticed my Wii was still spinning. I dont have a Preloader, All i have is BootMii, and the other stuff down in my Sig
