    then why is it called WiiConnect 24 then?

    i would imagine if it is 24 they mean 24/7

    If this law does go ahead, it'll take years to implement, so it's unlikely we'll have to worry about it for the foreseeable future. Also, it could be argued that it is more eco-friendly for the Wii to download in standby mode rather than while using full power.

    Well all the examples they gave were of items in which the standby mode was a non-essential feature, who gives a toss whether you can leave your tv on standby? Just get up and turn it on _ However with the Wii one of its primary features involves a standby mode and to remove this would be to lessen the product and as such I don't believe that the law will affect it, it's more for products that don't need it.

    Anyway I'm pretty well keyed up on the news reports and general laws in parliament and I've never heard of this specific movement, when was it put forward?

    Oh and it doesn't really matter, if it were true it would take a good few years to ratify and put through by which time the consoles would have been on mass sale so no worriers. As someone in the article said it simply can't be though as everything we import would have to be devoid of a standby feature. No company is going to alter their designs simply for our country, everything we get is imported from Taiwan or somewhere, it will cost us more for the removal of the feature.

    Heck look at it this way, I'll just leave my Wii on to download instead thus using about a quazillion times more power rather than the "less than a lightbulb" amount it would on standby so up yours government officials.

    Ouch...man I thought it was bad that I can't even go online at my Mom's house with my DS but this is far worse.

    Sorry, it's real. The proposers of this new law are targetting TV and DVD player standby modes (they didn't mention games consoles, but presumably they mean them as well). A fridge is not in "standby" because it still performs an essential task. Also, it should be pointed out that this law might not pass.
