    Hey guys I'm not sure if it's suppose to do it, but in standby mode (wiiconnect24 on) my Wii's side panel gets pretty hot. Anyone else have this problem ? or is it suppose to be like that

    Mine stays normally cool. Not too hot at least...and I've been keeping mine on for at least 1-2 weeks on standby every night.

    Yeh its because the fan isnt spinning when wiiconnect24 is on. It shouldnt do any harm and if your really worried buy a fan from ebay as mentioned above.

    ive found that it gets much hotter if its sitting on the carpet than on something like a table or a shelve on an entertainment center. if its on the floor, try and find a better place for it

    I leave standby connection on once, maybe at most, twice a week... mine gets hot too, it's sitting out on an open desk, and my fan does not come on and there are no settings or tricks i've found yet to turn the fan on.. mine gets hotter on standby in a couple hours than it does when its left on wii parade and/or playing games.
