    does anyone else have there wii light up the disc feeder part (you know, where the disc goes in) bright blow and stay blue when its powered down?

    i woke up one morning, saw the wii powered down, lite up bright blue.
    then when i came home from work, there it was again.
    and again, 2 days ago
    and again today.

    i mean, its a pretty blue to have light up the room, but is it good for the system, for electricity bill?

    It's just LED, your electricity bill will be fine. And yes it pulses, and it does this when you get a new message.

    You just have a message, turn on your Wii and click the envelope in the lower right hand corner. As for the power bill, both the LED bulbs put together use about 1W per hour. That's about the same ammount of energy it takes to lift a glass of water to your mouth, if that gives you any idea.

    Yeah, I was wondering if I left the blue light on, would my Wii be okay? Would it burn out? Get hot? Mess up? I know the Wii's very efficient with electricity, so I'm not worrying about that...basically I'm wondering if there would be any negative effects to leaving my Wii Blue LED turned on all the time...(or how long can I leave it on a day...?)...

    are your systems on standby for the light to come on and stay blue?

    The blue light on my Wii only flickers when I turn the machine on. Is there any way to make it stay on?

    I calculated it a while ago and if the blue led lights were on 24/7 all year long it'd only cost you like 12 or 13 cents more a year.

    Led's are supposed to last over 100,000 hours (source)

    So if the led's were on 24/7 all year long they'd last over 11 years.

    Yes, you're LEDs aren'g going out anytime soon.
    Which makes me wonder why Nintendo just didn't keep the light on with the option of turning it off...
