    Has the overheating issue been fixed yet?

    As most people know by now, leaving your Wii in standby mode for a long time may cause the GPU to overheat, and leave you with dark, ugly pixelation. I had this issue and sent it in for repairs, and it's back now, good as new. But while I was on the phone, the Nintendo guy didn't seem to be well-informed about the issue. He kept constantly saying, "Well...the Wii is designed to be left in standby mode...the Wii is the best thing since sliced bread..." I thought this would have been a well-known problem and setting up repairs shouldn't have taken more than 2 minutes.
    Anyways, now that I have it back, I'm debating whether I should leave it in standby mode or not. I've heard that it could just be that my Wii was old or faulty or something, and it should be fixed now. However, they merely replaced my damaged components; they didn't send me a brand new console. So it could still be faulty. Has Nintendo released a firmware update that fixed this overheating issue?

    some wiis i assume the older models are more prone to heating, mine is, so i bought like a 5$ intercooler that runs constantly through one of the wiis USB ports.

    i bought my wii on launch day and it has always been on stand by mode since then and it has never over heated. a possible reason for your wii overheating so much is probably because it's hotter where you live?

    It's actually quite a rare problem. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I haven't had my Wii for a year yet and I have the same problem as the OP.
    The Wii has ample ventilation and it's not the weather or room temperature.

    I'm pretty sure that it has proper venhilation. It has a TV a couple inches to the right of it (but it's a flat screen, so it shouldn't be a problem), the top of my desk a couple inces to the left, the wall about half a foot behind it, and the front faces out in the open. Is this ideal, or is it still too enclosed? It's on a hard, flat surface though, unlike the carpet I used to put it on. Could this have been the problem before?
