    Depends when. It shoudn't during gameplay. If you do it during an update, you could brick your Wii. If done while running homebrew, it can corrupt files on the SD card.

    I would try to avoid doing it whenever possible. I understand if it is froze you have no choice. As with any electronic device I try to shut ours down with the Wiimote or via HBC/shutdown to avoid any spindown or damage to the HDD.
