    well, mines verticle now to avoid the surface heat. do you think 48hours (give or take) would of hurt anything while horizontal? (i switched where it layed every 12 hours anyways)
    My opinion: the Wii is warmer when sitting down because less air flow actually gets to its underside. When it is standing vertical more air can pass around it. I have had mine horizontally for 2 months at least though and have experienced no problems.

    I was skateboarding to my friend's house in like, 2003 with my Gamecube in my backpack and I left it unzipped on accident. I ollied up a curb and the cube shot up out of the backpack and slammed to the ground. Still works to this day. :P
    Successfully modded my Wii with CycloWiz! :] Works great.

    Cooler your system is, the longer it will last. I myself am thinking about getting a cooling stand for my system soley because the rents are worried about it getting too hot.

    well simply take it off stand by mode and unplug it from the wall. Who cares if you miss a mii or an update overnight, its not like it will be gone when you boot it up the next day. The best way to increase the longevity of any electronic is to shut it off and remove from a power source when done.

    You all know the wii is cool as a cucumber when it runs so there is no need for a intercooler when its on.

    The wii does get hot with wii connect on 24/7 so I turned it off. Wouldn't it be more interesting in testing the wii overheating in the summer heat?

    I can't count how many times I knocked the NES off the shelf when I was a kid.

    But yes, I've also been connected since launch day, no problems at all.
    "Kids, let me tell you about another so-called "wicked" guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas, and he didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was... I forget. But the point is... well, I forget that too. Marge, you know who I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?"

    and even if you are 24/7 connect, whenever you play the wii the fans cool down the network card.
