Ok, just a few minuets ago my wii froze for what is probably the first time since I bought it (which is actually quite impressive). Anyway, as usual the first thing I did was press the reset button. It didn't work! I pressed it a few more times, and it still wouldn't reset. I tried turning it off several times with both the remote and the actual power button on the console. They didn't work either, even when I held down the button for several seconds. Eventually I just said "**** it" and pulled the cord from the wall, finally getting it to shut off.
Has anyone else noticed this problem with their wii? Its definitely something I can live with (after all this is only the first time its froze in the 3 years I've had it, so I doubt it will happen frequently), but I'd like to know if this is normal or not.
Well, actually, no there are times when holding down the power button does not work. It froze on me while on Wifi for Call of Duty: World at War, and I held the power button for over a minute and nothing. I tried everything, and was forced to unplug the Wii. Luckily this kind of freeze doesn't happen often and it only happens on Nintendo Wifi (to my understanding).
