    My son's wii does the same thing sometimes. I always have to go in and unplug it from the power to turn it off. Although now I'm having other problems now on all discs it says and error has occured please eject the disc and refer to the owners manuel.

To turn the wii off with the power button you have to hold it in a few seconds, this can be confusing leading people to think there is a problem, however it is designed to go into a stand-by mode if you just push the button, if you hold it in...i think 5 second or so it will power off
this is using the button on the wii itself not the power button on the controllers

Nintendo Wii Troubleshooting?

Wii can not tell you, but perhaps Nintendo can. I would call their customer service at 1-800-255-3700. Make sure you write down the ERROR code # (if the Wii gave one).
