Question about Nintendo Wii Console
He did not push the on button though. What effect will this have on the console?
The console is always on when it is plugged in. The transformer will take care of any excess power input, but if you have downloads running or that kind of thing the Wii will do them while it is plugged in. Treat the ON button as a sleep button rather than a power off one. A 220v power source won't damage the console.
When the console is plugged in and "switched off" the console uses the same power as a low energy lightbulb.

Tips for a great answer:
Locate the "reset" button on the front of the Wii console. Hold it down for a few seconds to reset the device.
Wait for the home screen to appear, then hold down the "power" button on the front of the Wii until the power light turns red and the Wii shuts down.
Unplug the Wii's power supply from the wall outlet or power strip.
Leave the Wii console unplugged for at least five minutes. Reconnect the power supply and press the power button to turn the Wii back on and complete the hard reset.
