    Mine is standing up on the stand.
    If its lying down it reminds me of a Commodore 64. Yuk!

    Laying horizontally. Avoids people knocking it over.

    Actually, ventillation is worse when it's horizontal and more dust is possible to get into it (and freakish pet hairs) so I have it vertical.

    Mostly vertical, but if people are playing it with me I put it horizontal so if they knock it, it won't break.
    Btw title made me chuckle, but I guess I've got a dirty mind :D

    Mine is laying down just because it fits better in my entrtainment center that way but I like the vertical look so much more.

    Mine kept getting knocked over, mainly because of the gamecube controllers, so I lay it flat.

    Same here, the GC controller cords are a real danger when the unit is vertical.

    I have mine standing upright next to the TV, in a corner, so no fear of it being knocked over by my little one. :)

    I do notice though how hot it gets! :yikes:

    I have a couple, but do not seem to work as nicely as those wired ones. Besides you lose the rumble feature. Also have a couple of wireless pelican controllers. Those are horrible on the Wii.
