Should the wii remote be able to power off the wii?

    Hi!

    I can use my wii remote to power on the wii while in standby mode, but I can't turn it off again with the same button on the wii remote. I got the impression that this was suppose to be possible, to turn the wii both on AND off with the remote, isn't it? or is it just me?

    Yeah, i usually have to hold it for about one or two seconds for it to turn off, and then after that, it takes another one or two for the light to go orange.

    LOL I am not a manual boy, I read them when I wonder about something and this seemed to obvious to read about but I guess I where wrong.

    Todays lesson: you can never really expect to be certain about anything at all, pretty much.
