    I never noticed this until now, but it seems after i shut the wii down a while latter the blue light around the disc slot will come on and stay on, any reason for this?

    Are you playing Wii Sports or Mario Galaxy? Some games send messages to the message board when you meet certain achievements.

    Galaxy seems to have a lot of messages, as well as the Check Mii Out Channel.

    Mine does the same thing, I was worried I left it on, but I then guessed it was just getting data.

    ya its normal, it means you have just recieved something most of the time, it can be turned off in the wii settings if you wish

    oh man, I was so worried that my wii was breaking down. That seems really unusual that Nintendo would choose to have the wii light blink so irradicly(?). If it were up to me I would have made it blink uniformly and actually make it look like it was meant to do the blinking, instead of flickering like the light is burning out.

    I was actually worried that my wii was pissed at me for spending all my time with my new PS3 ;)

    Thanks for the great responses, it allways amazes me that I can actually come to wiichat and find my exact issue on the first page without even having to search. Kudos to the wii community.

    UMMM ITS NORMAL GET OVER IT.

    It is a visual way to let you know you have mail or an system update.

    Its quite clever actually not a problem or a fault!!!

    PS. read your manual!

    What crawled up your a**
    Thanks for being bonified useless to the forum, I was worried and now im not thanks to everyone here. I did read the manual no where does it mention that when it looks like your blue light is short circuiting that this is normal and to get over it.
