    if you just tap the power button does it turn it off or just put it on standby? Im confused with the lights and just tend to hold the thing down till it turns Red. Stupid battery used controllers...thank god they came out with the standby modes for them..

    Quick press to orange light - standby mode (assuming you have WiiConnect24 active).

    Long press - all the way off (even if you have WiiConnect24 set to be on, it will be off until you turn on the Wii again).

    This should all be covered in the manual.

    Make sure you sync your remotes to your Wii using the orange button method (press the orange button in the remote's battery compartment, then press the orange button behind the SD card slot door). Only remotes synced with this method can turn your Wii off and on.

    If you've only done the temporary sync (syncing them throught the remote settings screen), then that remote cannot turn off or on your Wii.


    However, this doesn't explain why the button on your Wii itself doesn't work.

    Holding the power button down for around 10 seconds will make it have a red light. This means it is using a minimum amount of power, not even WiiConnect24 is active.

    There is no lower power mode besides just unplugging or turning it off at the wall

    Same with most VCRs, TVs, DVD Players, and Stereos.

    ANYTHING that you can turn ON with A REMOTE is already in a low-power state "watching" for you to hit the power button on the remote.

    These "vampire" electronics are thought to be using a pretty hefty percentage (1-5%?) of the US' energy every year..

    Actually, most TVs and VCRs have a physical switch on the front to fully turn it off.
