Just happened to touch my wii the other day it sits on top of my 360 and it was in stand by yellow light and it was very hot to the touch is this normal for since it does stay online and stuff.

Well i moved it off my 360 cause it by it's self wasn't helping any heat problems lol.

When a Wii is in standby mode, heat is created and the fans are turned off. This can cause problems. Some people have reported a burnt out GPU because of it. Known as artifacting, and there is no "fix". You need to get it repaired by Nintendo when that happens.

More info and a nice standby fan mod by sickmods here:
