Yes, the wiimote button does turn the wii on, and now the others don't it's acting more normal.
Also; the wiimote will not sync, it flashes and then turns off.
This will be the third and last time im going to try asking about the Wii light....... What color is the light on the front of the Wii? Does it change color when you do anything? If so to what color? Both from using the Wiimote power button and from using the power button on the Wii itself? I just want to make sure we are all on the same page here and are understanding exactly what you are saying it is doing.
It goes red to green... For both wiimote and power button.
