    I wouldn't worry too much about it since Nintendo will replace the Wii, if you called in for the warrenty.

    I was searching around and found this. It might be helpful.

    My Wii is sitting on top of a UPS and has been connected to the internet and had a disc inserted 24 hours a day 7 days a week since I bought it. I have never had an issue with heat. Mine is vertical.

    We should state whether the system is vertical or horizontal. Maybe that is the difference?

    I've got a problem with mine, after playing RE4 i have weird lines on my screen. Been looking into it & it's artifacts caused by the graphics card overheating, seemingly becoming an increasing problem.

    It is caused by WiiConnect24 being left on as the fan does not kick in when this is on.

    any links to proof of this? My Wii had been connected to Connect24 since a month after US launch, and RE4 is the game I play most often, and I see no lines.

    My Wii only got noticeably hot once. It melted a little bit of the clear plastic on my LOZ case which was stood against it.

    There's quite a few threads on it over the web such as

    http://boards.ign.com/nintendo_wii_l...0/139581906/p1

    Ninendo UK were aware of the problem when i called them although they have not confirmed it is WiiConnect 24, but most techheads seem to think it is this.

    I'm a new owner of Wii (about 2 weeks) and this is exactly what I worry! I noticed that my Wii got really warm even though I didn't use it al day. I checked Nintendo web site and found out that the reason is most likely from my Wii setting with Wiiconnect24 on. When I turned off that Wiiconnect24, I could feel the difference right away: my Wii was not constantly hot as it used too. What a relief! To be honest, I didn't think that it helped because even though on standby mode (orange light) I don't think the Wii is working because I didn't hear any noise from Wii or that the harddrive is constantly spinning. So why the heck it's getting hot, right? Anyway, do you guys know whether I should leave Wiiconnect24 on or not?

    Well you wouldn't hear a hard drive spinning since Wiis don't have HDDs. It gets hot because it is constantly connecting to the internet to see if you have any messages or anything every few minutes. I would leave it on as it won't hurt anything.
