Just a question about the wii here. When I turn it off by both the remote and the wii itself the light only goes yellow. Where as I have seen several automatically go red. Can anyone tell me why?

When the light is yellow, it is in stand by mode. If you have your Wii constantly connected, it will notify you of new messages from either Nintendo or your Wii friends. When the light is red, it cannot receive messages nor is it constantly connected.

That is good to know Thanks Canadian. As I thought maybe it never goes to red I thought that something was wrong with it.

No prob. Mine goes yellow all the time when I shut it off. Sometimes I wake up to a flashing blue light on my Wii

I can't stand the flashing blue light (where the disc goes?) I turned it off in the settings. I never realized how bright it was until it woke me up at 2:00 in the morning.

You can get the light to go red by holding down the power button on the actual Wii. Otherwise, like Canadian said, it is just in standby mode.

Blue flashing is the Wii doing updates. Just unplug the little sucker, that's how I fixed my daughters. hehe

Well, I just turned off the blue light. It was easier than unplugging it all the time.. haha.
