    Well wii connect24 is the reason.. It can receive messages and updats when you are not there and is always connect to the internet.

    I agree that it does get hot though... There was a thread about this a while back and some people had left theors on since launch (months).

    Personally I worry that if i leave it on for too long it will overheat! SO I do turn if off every now and then!

    WiiConnect24 is the standby mode for the Wii. Its left in this mode to receive notification of updates and messages by a pulsating blue glow. I usually turn off my Wii during the night and leave it on standby during the day.

    It's supposed to on all the time, hence the 24 in WiiConnect24 (24 hours a day). Although at the moment, there's not a whole lot of activity, but in time, you could be missing out on a lot if you have it off.

    Ya true, but my life is with Nintendo. I only have limited free thought.
