Just a few days ago i bought a wiimote to use it with a pc for the whiteboard project. The first i did was to connect it to the pc with the synch button, all ok the first time. The second time things went bad, the remote didn;t even blink, this happend another 2 times , the remote seemed dead but after removing the batteries all the times came to life. Is my wiimote broken or it goes a sleep mode or anything like that because of wrong use with the pc???Anyone has a similar problem please help...
Thank you

The Wiimote is very voltage sensative. make sure you are using new abtteries (if sitting in a shop for a while may be funny batteries).

Also could be that it is a Wumote note a Wiimote.

Connecting to a PC has no effect on a Wiimote so definately not that.

Of course i have tried also new batteries, the same result removing the batteries for 10 mins or so then reinstalling and all is ok, it can resync again, but if i let it alone for more that 20min i canot re-power it, it seems to be in a sleep mode and i cannot wake it up, am i doing something wrong????
