I just had the same problem as everyone else. I had a brief power loss and our new Wii system's power would no longer work. To fix the problem, I unplugged everything from our Wii and unplugged the power cord from the outlet. I let the system set for 10 minutes and re-plugged the power only. That did the trick. Then I was able to plug everything back up and we are now back to playing.
Supposedly, doing the steps above resets the Wii according to the Nintendo online trouble shooting guide.

did you try the pwr button on the console not just on the remote?
it might have still been fried, some electronics are sensitive- or it was in the middle of an update

If the power light is that is suppoed to be red when the wii is off and green when it is on, doesnt even glow red, chances are you left your Wii on for too long and the adapter overheated. Go behind the wii and COMPLETELY unplug the gray box from both the wall AND the wii. Wait for a couple of hours and you should be able to see the red power light when you plug it in. Your best bet would be to unplug it before you go to bed. When you get up in the morning just plug it back in.

Usually, after a power outage, a power spike (when the power returns) can disable/blow the fuse in the AC adapter for the Wii.
Try the following steps in this order:
- unplug the Wii's power cord from the wall, and leave it unplugged (from 5 mins. to 5 hours). Then, plug it back into the wall. (Unplugging the power cord from the back of the Wii will not help. You need to unplug the power cord from the wall.)
- This usually helps reset the fuse circuit in the AC adapter, and your Wii should work again.
- open the panel on the AC adapter box in the power cord; since the screws are proprietary, you will need to creatively use existing tools to turn the screws
- check the 3A fuse in that box; if it looks blown, then replace it
- it might be cheaper to replace the AC adapter with another one
- get the unit repaired
- buy a SURGE PROTECTOR power bar, and plug all of your expensive items into it (to prevent this from happening again).
Hope that helps!
