    My wii does the same

    Green light = Console power is on

    Orange/yellow = Wiiconnect24 is on

    Red = Wiiconnect24 is off

    Wiiconnect24 is where your wii recieves data via wifi or lan while your console is on standby.

    Yellow means that it's on standby, and that your Wii is connected to the internet. So it's nothing to be worried about, in fact, it's a good thing Red = Off Yellow = Standby (Off, but still connected to the internet) Green = On To completely turn off your Wii (I don't know why you would bother) just press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.

    someone might have turned off WiiConnect24 but it could be something else. if you unplug the Wii or you blow a fuse or you have a power surge or there is an electromagnetic pulse from a nuclear explosion or SOMEHOW the supply of power is cut off from the wii and then the power turns on again the light will turn red. its kind of like a clock turns to 12:00 when you unplug it. usually if you turn it on and off it turns yellow again. if not, i'd call nintendo costumer service

    you must have turned off standby in the options menu on your wii. Standby is when your wii is still using power, but barely any.

    The normal and setted settings is red. It is yellow becuse you put it to standby and its connected to internet.
