    I'm all about conserving the life of this fine console and plan to have it for a very long time...call me old fashioned but after seeing how hot the poor thing got there is no way I'm leaving it on 24/7. You can easily find out about updates right here on this forum, and like somebody said above they only leave theirs on during the day...in case you get a message, this could fill the gap. Still though, it obviously makes the console work overtime. Guess it all comes down to how much you love your Wii!

    Whats the point of that(qm)

    Theres gonna be something new in 2011 (supersomethingorother) and the only consoles worth keeping is like the... NES. I still have the NES that my mum and dad won in a church raffle. My grandpa then got them elda II for christmas. It died this summer though. R.I.P. NES.

    it being on standby uses little to no energy at all. so having it off isnt "saving the world"

    mine never really gets to hot, but it always is warm. and mines always on standby unless the power goes out and when it comes back on. the system is off.

    The only time my Wii has been turned off is during power failures, and I've had mine since December of last year.

    10 million x how much voltage it takes to keep running/second = massive consumption

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    Eh. I don't need updates.
    So I don't need it on.

    Maybe in the future when WiiConnect 24 is actually useful.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    uhm yeah no...if it uses such little energy when on standby, it does not take 10 million x voltage to keep it running. basically the system is almost completly off...
