[QUOTE=Gillyanne;3024844]hold down the power button on the console until it goes red. just the quick press won't take it all the way off. but in the red light, it won't automatically download anything (since it's off, it can't connect to the wifi)
Thank you all for your advice. I appreciate it.
Thanks for your help on this. i was wondering about it too, it is kind of annoying. I have three blinking blue lights that light up the entire room when it's dark.
Yeah I tried holding the power button down on the Wii until it went red and the dongles turned off too.

I just unplug my hub everytime I'm done with the game. I see no sense in having my instruments plugged in if im playing another game or not playing at all and having Wii connect 24 on prevents them from shutting off. If you have to "climb" behind your console perhaps you should set it up in a more accessible place.

to turn off the blue light when it's in standby (the light usually indicates it's DLing something, or you have a message waiting) go to your wii settings, then wiiconnect24 and then slot illumination, you can set bright, dim or off there.
The dongles stop blinking if WiiConnect24 is disabled. I turned it off specifically to stop the blinking and haven't missed it since, as I never really utilized its functionality.
Prior to realizing this, I covered the blinking blue LEDs with duct tape.
