    The wii is off but wiiconnect24 is still working so that you can recieve messages and such.

    its safe to keep it on, although it might get a little hot.

    It's designed to work that way, so of course it's not damaging to leave it like that.

    I leave my PS2 on standby whenever I'm not using it and nothing happens should be the same for the Wii.

    i leave mine like that, no problem

    one thing a friend pointed out, his router only detects the MAC address when in standby, but in powered on mode you get a hostname. something to consider if you take network security seriously

    Red light is not good, i don't mean bad but it means it's completely off, including Connect24, and that you're wasting your power. So I would recommend keeping it at orange.

    I have wiiconnect set to turn off when I'm not using the wii. The side of the wii gets warm when it is left on and I am paranoid about these kinds of things:D
