Yes the slot will glow blue and you can set it to off, dim or bright on the Wiiconnect24 tab. You can also select whether or not the Wii can go online when the unit is turned off. I have Wiiconnect24 on but offline mode turned off.

yeah. i was originally debating leaving it on or turning it off.... but i figured what the hell.... it uses boatloads less power than 360 does even at an idle. according to the one thing that Kotaku referenced.... here's the power consumption between Wii, 360, and a 37" Sharp Aquos LCD TV:
Wii:
- In Standby Mode: 10w
- Idle @ Wii menu: 17w
- Running a Wii Game (Test with Zelda / Trauma Center) in 480i: 17w

37" Sharp Aquos LCD TV:
- In Standby Mode: 40w
- Turned on: 180w

XBox 360:
- In Standby Mode: 2w
- Idle @ Dashboard: ~140w
- Running a Game: ~160w
- Playing a DVD: ~110w
as far as i can tell... the "standby" mode that those usage stats refers to is when WiiConnect24 is active while the system is off.... seeing as if WC24 wasn't enabled, and all it was really doing was powering that one tiny LED..... the usage stats would probably be equal or close to that of the 360's standby mode.

There are two stages of standby and red led standby was (I think) 4 or 5 watts.

Green- Wii is on
Yellow- Wii is on standby, Wiiconnect24 is ON
Red- Wii in on standby, Wiiconnect24 is OFF

You can leave wiiconnect24 on and turn off standby connection then led will go red.

I am looking for where I saw power usage for each of the led colors.

....why does it never seem like my Wii checks if anyone added me to their friends list.... or is that only if they add me without me adding them? i never seem to have any mail.... other than that stupid "today's accomplishments" crap.

I added a couple of you folks to test it out, but your names are still grayed out in my address book.

I know I can connect to the net because I've been downloading Virtual Console games and I can send messages to myself via email.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
