    My brother was reading his Wii manual, and it says it's not good to leave a disc in the system when its not being used... What the heck is that all about, I mean... The controller has a power button for a reason, so I don't have to get up! Does this mean I have to walk allllll that way to my Wii to take the disc out each time I turn it off, and put the game back in everytime I want to play??? SHATTY DEAL

    Considering how bullet proof all nintendo products have been in the past I'm pretty sure that ultimately my system won't kerplode because I leave the game sitting in it.. THe only fear I really have is that either the disc will get scratched somehow by maybe the system being bumped on the desk without it running... or, that maybe when the system is on standby something funky and magnetic is going on that could wreck the CD. Neither of these seem reasonable to me so screw this, I'm gonna ignore nintendo on this one!

    This is probably so that if you ever have to move the system the disc wont get scratched.

    I've heard about disks getting warm because of WiiConnect24. When the disk stays in the Wii, WiiConnect is still going on so it kinda heats it up. I don't really think there is much of a risk factor though.

    I always leave my discs in, most of the time things you see in the manual are just recommendations to be on the safe side.

    P.S. I'm surprised you actually read your manual, most people don't and because they don't they go online and ask others stupid questions that are usually in the manual. The perfect term we all know of RTFM (read the ****ing manual)

    Yah, well if u read my original post I actually didn't read it, it was my brother haha. But since he couldn't find a good reason for it in the manual and he's not a moron I figured that it probably wasn't in there and I might aswell ask you guys! Anywho, sounds like it's not a problem. False alarm everyone!

    It says a lot of things in the manual. This is so angry mothers can't find little retarded things to pull the S-card out about.
