What does it mean when the Wii light flashes blue when switched off?

You mean around where you put a disc in, yeah? It means you have a message waiting for you - maybe an update from Nintendo, or from a friend.

:p

You can turn the "new message" light off (or dim it/make it brighter) in the options.

The Wii comes alive at night a la Toy Story, this is evidence of it thinking that you've left the room and accidently nearly coming to life while you're still there.

I normally unplug it anyway, I don't like leaving things on 'standby' as it doesn't take much to turn them off and on again and it's one little thing I can do for the world that doesn't involve major effort.

I must admit with all the press about TV's being made to disable standby features in the future (isn't there a ruling that states any TV manufactured after 2008 must not have a standby feature?) I was a little disappointed that Ninty added this. I can't really see the major benefit of it to be honest.

Well, that blows. I often put my TV on standby if I'm leaving the room for a few minutes to get a drink or something. Surely just having an auto-off after a certain amount of time on standby would be better?

I think they're suggesting that the on/off button on your tv remote should actually do that, rather than put it on standby.

I used to have a TV once which you could turn off completely with the remote, and that was an analogue button, I'm sure in this digital age such a thing shouldn't be so difficult.

Yeah, that would be fine if they could do that, then.
