I am finding that the blue notification light around the disc slot is not working when I get a message. I have gone into the settings and confirmed that it is set to bright, WiiConnect24 is on, and I have an active connection to the Internet. I learned that the Wii won't accept an email unless you are registered, so I did that with one of my email addresses. When I send an email to it, the wii's slot blinks for one second, goes away, and I never see it again until it blinks for a sec when I turn it on.
From what I have read, it should stay on (pulsate) until I read that message. I have never opened any of the 5 or so emails I have sent to it, and still no light. I know some are annoyed by this, but I want some blue glow goodness!! Any help is greatly appreciated!
I would also note that when I send messages to myself while the wii is in standby it does not illuminate.
