    Wiimote turning off on its own

    Please help...I'm not very knowledgeable about the Wii but the remote keeps turning off by itself. I have replaced batteries, tried taking off the motion plus thing, tried rechargeable batteries...but this thing keeps turning off on its own. We will be in the middle of any game and it will turn off. Is there something that I have done wrong or is it best to just exchange the remote? (it is the black remote with motion plus). Thanks for any help.

    Could it be that Wii Jacket is pressing the button?

    Otherwise: exchange at your local store for another one.

    BEFORE ADDING ME ANYWHERE, PLEASE CONFIRM THAT WE'VE MET BEFORE/TALKED ALREADY.

    Spoiler Alert!

    Mine does the same thing. That is normal. It's not off just in sleep mode after it detects no input. Like if you go to the bathroom or something 5 minutes later it goes to sleep. press a button and it awakens and the communication with the remote message goes away.

    He said the remote is turning off, not the Wii. There is no button that turns off the remote.

    He said it goes off while in the middle of a game, not sitting unattended.

    not true. if you just hold the power button for a second or so the remote will turn on off but not the wii. hold it for a few seconds and the wii turns off. it could actually be the jacket like YL suggested

    I think you need to try that again. That button is only for turning the Wii itself on and off.

    It does happen while I'm in the middle of a game sometimes. If I take too long to respond or think about my next move. Or sometimes when the battery is on its last lims. It could be the battery. The batteries don't last forever you know. If she has been using it for a few hours on a heavy game it could. It is not wired so it will eventually die. Just get the rechargable pack and keep rotating when they die. These work good for me.

    Do a Google search for: how to turn off wii remote
    Search Nintendo tech support too.
    You won't find any mention of being able to turn off just the remote by pressing the power button. And it's something a lot of people ask about.
