    I was watching some videos (prerelease console though) and the system looked like the CD tray should be glowing blue around the slot? Does anyone else's system do that?

    I was wondering that as well. I hope so, or I just might have to cry.:(

    Under Settings you can set it to glow blue, when its hooked up to WiiConnect24....I did it, it worked for a little not the whole time

    It only flashes once when I initially turn it on. I wish it would pulse during gameplay like how Mac portables pulse in sleep mode. That would be damn cool. I call for a firmware update!

    yeah it only does it when you get a message from Wiiconnect24.

    It sucks, i want it on all the time....even if neon blue light is a total tech fad right now

    Maybe there's goin to be a hack or firmware update where we could choose if we want it on or not. That would be awesome.

    Actually, that is a nice visual cue feature! I like that it comes on when you get new messages.

    It would also be a waste of energy if it was always on. Probably really miniscule but a waste none-the-less. Is it like E-mail when you get messages? If so just "check as unread" then the light will always be on.

    i think i remember hearing that it turns on when a disc is being loaded, among other things mentioned.

    I thought I originally read that it was going to be for inserting discs in low-light settings and once the disc was inserted, it would go away.

    Mine always glowed until today when I just confirmed my settings for WiiConnect 24 for my friend who wanted it to glow and it stopped. :(

    Made my parents happy but I liked it! :)
