Anytime a wii is plugged in it is on standby! you can turn it on from the wiimote, its on standby waiting for that signal, you have 2 options
1. have wiiconnect24 ON which is standby
2.Have wiiconnect 24 OFF, which is still standby, as you can turn it on from the wiimote therefore is it using up electricity waiting for that signal
Are you not a networks engineer? isnt this kinda stuff second nature to you? or are u just so petty you cant admit your wrong?
