    i could use any help anyone can offer on this but when i turn off my wii i leave wiiconnect24 on (purposely). when i wake back up to see the blue ligh ton everytime i feel it and its really really hot. now i know its not just me because my friend says his does it too but i was wandering if the wii is supposed to heat up like that or theres something wrong with it

    That's normal. The processor still runs when WC24 is turned on, but the fans don't (to reduce power). There will be quite a bit of heat generated, but not enough to do any damage.

    i dont have this problem, it seems it only happens when i leave a disc in or something but i could be wrong, so registered nerd, the processor can run and heat up without any damage to it? just trying to understand, i dont know about tech things like that :p

    Not to say I know alot about the wii, but I'm sure that WC24 uses so little processing power that the heat generated would be minimal. As long as the wii isn't closed up in a poorly ventilated cabinet, you'll be just fine.

    Hours of constant gameplay will generate more heat than weeks of idling w/WC24.

    Don't worry, there will be an intercooler for the Wii within early next year.

    I knew it wouldn't take long for someone to notice!! I wish I could use a family guy .wav file in place of a text sig... I love the theme song, in fact it was stuck in my head this morning LOL

    Well, that's it... time for me to go and try to put the ball in the cup!

    I wonder if Wario Ware has ball in a cup ???? Hmmmmm :idea:

    So let me get this straight, if I leave my LED light on my Wii on 24/7 (just to make the Wii look nicer in my room) and have Wii Connect 24 on and don't use it for awhile the heat won't build up and hurt my Wii right?

    Also, about the intercooler... is that like an add-on for the Wii or do they add that like 2nd generation thing they add onto it later on?

    it is designed to run 24/7 from the ground up
    to paraphrase one of the engineers
    ' we didn't want mom waking up in the middle of the night thinking she didn't unplug something when the fan comes on... the components were chosen with their heat tolerences in mind for always on service'

    or something like that
    just make sure it has some room to breathe
    and about teh light....just how much heat do you think an LED outputs??

    The heat won't affect it but if it bothers you hook up a small fan to blow on the Wii until the intercooler comes.
