I have a 3v adapter to provide power for wiimote and it run smoothly. But about permanent sys, because wiimote will hang on celling so we need an ideal of sys it. we got some ideal that we will hold 1 & 2 button forever, so when you plug in adapter, the wiimote will immediately start sys. The led will blink until the wiimote connect to computer. But I have some question:

1. Is it ok if I hold 1 & 2 forever ? can it make some problem to wiimote. this is the most problem that I care
2. Is there any other method ? ( buy usb sys from some website? )

Thanks for reading

Other than holding down the 1+2 buttons, you can permanently hold down the red sync button which will put the Wiimote in discovery mode when powered on.

Holding the 1+2 buttons continuously should be alright. However, whether this have an effect on the Wiimote for very long term used, there may be uncertainties as not many would have tested it for very long periods.
