    if you're connected to the internet your light will most likely always be yellow.
    green when it's on. & red if you aren't connected.

    mines always yellow.

    If you connect at a certain point in time, and don't have a connection, it'll still be yellow. Kinda sucks.

    Yeah.

    red: Off
    yellow: Standby mode
    Green: On

    If your still worried about that yellow light just hold in the power button on the consolefor about 5-8 seconds and it'll just shut-off & not go into standby.

    So basically, as long as the light is red, it's off and it wont cause any problems if i keep the wii plugged in 24/7, correct?

    No, Nintendo designs their consoles to be destroyed. They even put that nice yellow light in there to warn you about it.

    You can leave it plugged in no matter what color the light is - off, standby, or on.

    If you've connected in the past (say at a friend's house) and you don't have an available wireless connection at the moment, the yellow light will still be on. You have to manually turn it off again.

    Keeping a console in standby mode uses about 1.5 watts and can add up to lik 40 or so dollars in electricity bills.

    Just hold the power button until it goes to red. It'll take about 5-6 seconds.

    It would take a very long time for a constant 1.5w draw to add up to 40 bucks.
