    How to properly turn off the Wii

    I was wondering if it makes any difference whether i shutdown the wii while in the netflix app or should I exit to the wii menu and shutdown there?

    It doesn't matter.

    Always exit the app/channel your using before powering off the Wii if possible.

    Really? I've never heard anything that suggests it is better to exit a channel (not an app) first.

    Well I suppose it doesn't matter so much with channels on the NAND but it only takes a second to exit to Wii menu then power off. I just got into the habit of doing it with anything on the Wii.

    Has there been any reports of something bad happening? I sometimes get too lazy to go to wii menu.

    yeah the way i look at it is pretty much the same as being in starcraft on my computer and shutting it down from there. doesnt seem like a proper shutdown and things are not closed properly can cause shaky boot-ups and maybe hard disc error.

    dunno just speculation
    better safe than sorry
