Not a joke, though it sounds like one. But I would like to know if it is common for the Wii to turn itself on. I waas walking past the tv and noticed the Wii 's blu light was blinking like crazy and the wii seem to be having a great time. ITurned the TV on to see what was up but there waas no signal coming from the wii to the TV. So I turned the wii off (with the remote) and walked away. When I walked by the TV again in about 3 minutes the wii had turned itself on again. (I do have a wifi network but the only thing I ever access on the wii is the weather channel.) What's up with that?
