    So far it has happened when I played Wii sports and Cars (lol. its actually a pretty good game). I think it was ok when i played it with Zelda. Maybe we're looking at one of the first big issues with the Wii's....

    I haven't got my Wii yet (8th of december) but I've tried it at Churchill Square in Brighton (at the weekend) and its pretty cool... anyhow (enough of the bragging...)

    I was under the impression you calibrated the wiimotes? or is that not the case?

    if so try recalibrating them...

    with the wiimote power problems try changing the batteries... (silly I know - but you can get duff batteries straight out of the box)

    is their a range on the Infrared ? (used for the location of the cursor on the screen?)
    ^ could also be a calibration problem if you calibrate them...

    as for the jerky choppy movements... do you have unsteady hands as adrenaline pumps through your body for getting to hold the wiimote :P

    I thought about this, but what's strange is that the batteries show as fully charged. I haven't had a chance to go out and see if they tried changing them, or if the problem's still happening, but it's not as if the batteries are actually low.

    My understanding is that they use a combination of Bluetooth (for gyroscopic data, etc.) and IR (for pointing on the screen, not used during game play). Our other theory is that something else in the 2.4 GHz range (such as WiFi, or a neighbor's microwave?) is wiping it out. But I'm not sure that would cause the remote to actually turn off. (And since the Wii has integrated WiFi, I'd think that if WiFi and Bluetooth were clobbering each other, that would have been caught early on at Nintendo.)

    sorry to disagree but the IR is use during gameplay (depending on the game)

    this is used during Z:TP for aiming navi & bow and arrow... also used in wii play...
    and probably red steel etc...

    it is also used in gauging depth (distance from the screen) - WarioWare Smooth Moves

    I saw Z:TP, Wii Sports, Wii Play & Smooth Moves at the Nintendo Tour in Brighton the weekend just gone.

    (Z:TP) If you moved the IR cursor off the screen a message came up telling you to point it at the screen (the IR sensor)

    Wii Play (Duck Hunt style game) - moving the wiimote so it wasn't pointing at the screen didnt give a message but caused it to sit at the edge of the screen until you pointed it back at it...

    Smooth Moves uses it for distance from the screen... In one minigame you have to put some false teeth into an old ladies mouth by lining it up to her mouth and moving the Wiimote closer to the screen which made the teeth get smaller and go into her mouth...

    p.s. the Btooth is used in sendning all the motion data & game saves/settings etc across... (the stuff thats stored on the wiimote anyhow)

    edit
    p.p.s The bluetooth & wifi are on different frequencies and will not interfere...

    Don't apologize; I appreciate the correction. (However, with me having only played Wii Sports, you can see how I was mistaken, as it's not actually used in-game at all.)

    (I'm going to have to go ahead and try some of the other games soon, though!)

    The bluetooth & wifi are on different frequencies and will not interfere...
    I thought they were both on the 2.4 GHz spectrum. What, in theory, helps alleviate that is that Bluetooth uses frequency-hopping, and is supposed to not choose 'crowded' frequencies in the sequence. I do tend to agree, though, that Bluetooth interference is probably not the problem.

    I've replaced the batteries and the batteries show that they are full (so did the older batteries). I've resynced the remote and its still a bit skippy. I havent had it shutdown on me yet, but I haven't played all that much

    I've had the same thing.

    It only happens on Wii SPorts Baseball, and only when I'm batting.
    After a swing. Which I'm probably putting way too much force into, the controller goes dead, the blue LEDS on the remote turn off, and the chatcater on screens, baseball bat goes back to a set position of - but slanted down slightly.
    I have to press the 1 and 2 buttons (not together just any one of them) to turn the remote back on. It will flash all 4 blue lights on the remote, and then the character on screens bat will respond to the remote again.

    The problem is, the pitcher will keep pitching while this happens.

    I'm wondering if it's because I'm swinging too hard, but I don't think it is, as I don't have any problems while pitching.

    I don't get any warning message about the Remote becoming disconnected.

    I have wrapped "our" Wii up ready for christmas for my daughter so I can't test this theory, but is it possible that the swinging/batting movements used in Wii sports are causing the batteries to move slightly in the remote, causing some sort of voltage supply spike or drop ??

    Might not make sense, but I know what I mean

    I've noticed the same thing (mainly during tennis and baseball). I'll take a swing and then nothing for a few seconds then a few flashes of the lights and back on it goes. I wonder if swinging the wii-mote too hard disrupts the acclerometers somehow and causes a disruption in the voltage between the plates causing it not to register the motion. I dunno...it's a pain though when doing the Wii Fitness...that tennis coach just keeps sending balls over the net and my mote stops working. AAAAAAHHHHHHHH!
    Why can't wii all just get along?
