Ok, so I just got my Wii for Christmas and it seems about once a day I get the problem where it goes to read the disk and I get the black screen saying "Error Occurred, please turn off the Wii, etc...". I've looked on here and it seems others have this problem, so I'm wondering if this is a common thing? Is it something I should be concerned about and have fixed by Nintendo? Or is it something most Wii's do from time to time and I should just deal with it? The Wii is only a week old so it concerns me that I'm already having problems with it.
One more thing, is there a way to power OFF the Wii or is it always in standby mode and you have to physically unplug it to shut it off?
