After reading some forums and seeing the hardware issues.. I have decided to treat my wii like a person. I am now turning it completely off (Red) when i go to bed, trying to cool it off some. I am also giving it time to just refresh itself.. I know this may not help it much and probably isn't the answer to all of the hardware issues lately but I believe it might help :smilewinkgrin: So does anyone take any other precautions to preserve their wii?
