My wii has been on for hours, even though it's not been used.
I've tried shutting it off and back on, but it won't turn off at all.
Not a fun time, especially if you're trying to get in a few minutes of game time on your work break.
It seems like you're stuck here until the Switch figures out how to unstick itself, but there are actually two different ways to deal with a frozen Switch.
The good news is neither are particularly complicated, but only one of them works when you're at home.
The act of docking and undocking your Switch briefly interrupts just about everything happening on the console.
You barely notice it because it happens so fast, but there's a brief stutter where the console makes that switch (I regret nothing) from one state to another.
If your Switch is frozen, dock it or undock it and see what happens in many cases, you'll see the console returns to normal functioning position and everything is great.
While some criticised Fritz for unplugging during an update, he reported that he had other gamers tweeting him to share similar stories.
As long as the console has power, you'll be able to reboot it this way.
Just press and hold that power button for 15 seconds.
Other, slower types of connections may not be compatible. Wireless interference can affect the signal strength between your system and wireless router.
If not press "control alt delete" and open up task manager and see if the update is showing as "Not Responding".
