    Treating your wii like a human

    After reading some forums and seeing the hardware issues.. I have decided to treat my wii like a person. I am now turning it completely off (Red) when i go to bed, trying to cool it off some. I am also giving it time to just refresh itself..
    I know this may not help it much and probably isn't the answer to all of the hardware issues lately but I believe it might help
    So does anyone take any other precautions to preserve their wii?

    turning it off does not make it more human than my dead cactus. but u may have a point, turning it off like that may have some advantage, although marginal..

    I try and turn most humans on when going to bed

    Turning it on and off all the time could possibly limit it's over all life span.

    If the power supply is designed to be left on then it may not like being
    turned off every day.

    Better would be to make sure it is well ventilated and out of direct sun light; in a cool area, etc.

    BTW I live in New Zealand, it is summer here, really hot and I've had no problems with my Wii. Apart from the wiimote playing up occasionally.

    Good luck.

    its a console mate they are tested before they are released etc. Treat it like a console, you dont have to mother it just take decent care of it like not dropping it or anything. Caution dont give it a bath if it gets dirty
    If You Add My Wii Code, Please PM me with your code so i can add you. THANKS

    lmao.. i mean i don't like kiss it every night.. or spoon feed it.. but i was curious what conditions yours are in.. cause i didn't get the warranty (i don't think) it was a present. i just want to keep it in good shape so i can always play it and never have to hassle with tech offices.
    Mine is next to a kinda of big tv... and it seems to get hot on one side.. so i haven't had any problems (even with the wii-mote) so ill just keep doing what i doing...
    so far only con for me:
    1. in one wii-mote, batteries didn't last to long.. but who cares.. its batteries
