    Question Hard Drive won't power down even when Wii is asleep.

    Hi all. I am soft-modded with the "SoftMod any Wii" guide. Things are working well now.Using the Fat32 guide, I have placed several games onto my usb HDD. They work!

    My question is: Is it normal that my HDD doesn't power down even after the Wii is sleeping? It is a WD Passport. Should I just unplug it after I shut off the Wii? Will the sudden loss of power damage the integrity of my files?

    Is your Wii fully shutting down (red light) or is it going info standby mode (yellow light)?

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Standby mode. Sorry, I call it sleeping. I'll start using your terminology.

    While in standby mode the system isn't fully shut down so it may be supplying power to the HDD still. Try disabling WiiConnect24 (which is useless now anyway) and see if your still experience the issue.
