    Sorry if this is a dumb question but how do you shut a wiimote off when it's not in use(as in player 2) but you still want to keep the system on for player 1???

    Either shut off the console or let the unused Wii remote turn off after inactivity.

    i just do the "go on to wiimote settings when you press the home button go to reconnect and just connect the 1 remote" if u wait, it will use up battery time.

    Let it shut off by itself or obviously take out the batteries.

    i use the same method you do.
    good post.
    this is easier than taking out the batteries most especially if you have your "wii-condom" on. :p

    You can do the Wii-mote settings and connect just the one Wii-mote for 1P, but in my opinion, there is no point, if you just let the Wii-mote sit, it will automatically shut off, the Wii-mote will not stay on long enough to drain the batteries, that is why if you play a VC game with the GCN controller then grab the Wii-mote to quit out of the game, you have to press the Home button twice, one to turn it back on, and a second time to do the desired function, also if you play a Gamecube game, the Wii goes into Gamecube (Dolphin) mode until the console is restarted keeping the Wii-mote off and unconnectable, there is no purpose for removing the batteries, just for patience

    Why hasn't everyone switched to rechargeables yet? Just wait, not that much battery. Just let it sit there, turning volume down and rumble off has much bigger effect. Besides, the first player mote probably gets a lot more use than 2nd anyway.

    It turns off by itself after a couple of minutes of inactivity. :/ Just set it down next to your TV or whatever, it'll turn off by itself. If you start a one-player game, it'll go off automatically, or so I've seen.
