    If it (whatever 'it' is) can be sent to your wii at any point when connected to connect24, then there is no need to keep your wii on standby at all.
    As far as im aware. Any messages, including from ninty(updates etc) get delivered as soon as you turn it back on.

    Then in that case there is absolutely no need for anyone to use either red or yellow standby!
    Its almost worth starting a petition for everyone to turn their wiis off at the plug when they're not using it.
    Its just wasting energy and money on something completely pointless!

    It uses about the same amount of energy as a low energy light blub. Probally not the best way to be saving the planet

    No, the Wii doesn't take much power at all when it's in standby mode. Infact it takes about the power of a small, dim, lightbulb when it's in standby.
    Anyways, the yellow light means that it's in Wiiconnect24 mode, where it can receive updates and messages.

    the big thing for me is, will the plug outlet eventually start to get loose or connection failure from constant in and out. On my ps2 slim i used to have it didnt have a power switch like the original ps2 and after a while from having to constantly unplug it, it started to become real loose. I wish they made a switch in the back for the wii.

    When the light is Yellow Wiiconnect24 is active. When the light is red it means that wiiconnect24 is in-active. Simple
    If You Add My Wii Code, Please PM me with your code so i can add you. THANKS

    I keep our Wiiconnect24 off and manually check for updates once a week.
