    Just don't rotate it when the game disks are in.

    I leave mine "flat", it sits nicely with my DVD, VCR and SAT Decoder that way.

    There is talk about the upright stand restricting the airflow from the cooling fan, but I'm sure Nintendo were happy with the design before releasing it.

    Incidentally, if you want your Wii to run (quite a lot) cooler, network it using ethernet rather than wireless. I don't know why it doesn't get as hot, it just doesn't.

    When vertical, it's easier to insert Game Cube controllers for VC and GC games.

    My TV stand isnt all that tall, so i just leave my Wii lying down. It does seem to get a little warmer, but thats about all.

    I guess that's kinda true, but I'd be worried about pulling the console over, if you have it lying flat to begin with, the worse that can happen is the GC controller will become unplugged.

    i have mine upside down vertically. It is sitting in a Wii Organizer and when i had it right side up it was quite hot. Since i saw this thread i turned it upside down so that the intake holes are not blocked and it's 100% cooler now.

    Doesn't that block off the GameCube controller and memory card slots? I'm guessing you just don't use them?

    I don't use the Wii stand; I was in the middle of the water temple (don't remember the actual name at the moment) in Zelda, and I forgot to save, stupidly, but I gently, VERY VERY VERY gently tugged the controller (I have the GC version of Zelda in case you think, how the **** did that happen with a wireless controller) by accident and the Wii toppled over and shut off. I was SOOOOOOOO pissed. It's fallen over twice. I just lay it on its side now.

    Aww... poor you.

    By the way, it's called the Lakebed Temple.
