Thanks, Calvinhedge. The Wii goes black forever as far as I know. I've never tried waiting it out anything more than 5 minutes or so. I'm going to call Nintendo today.
Matt11 - Should we be forced to turn Wii's on their side so they ventilate better? It just seems stupid.
whadusay54 - My Wii sucks out all the signal out of my wireless router. I am often having connection problems because of this.
