System locks up EVERY time I try to shut it off

I realize freezing problems appear to be widespread, but my Wii U locks up nearly every time I shut it off, regardless if I do it via the Gamepad or the power button on the console, forcing me to unplug it. I think it's powered off normally twice. Ironically, I haven't had it freeze while playing a game.

Just wondering if I should try and return it, or wait and see if this new update that will supposedly fix freezing issues fixes it.

I'd return it, simply because it's a different problem then the one others are experiencing.

Unless you have downloaded any paid for applications (not sure if they're transferrable yet) I agree with the above poster, just take it back to the store.

If you have bought anything, contact Nintendo.

If you unluckerly downloaded the update to go online then your Wii U is bugged, best get a new one and refuse any update from nintendo and you wont have that problem again.

Nope it downloaded the update just fine, and I have yet to be able to register a Nintendo Network ID due to congestion, so I'm not concerned about anything E-shop related.

The Wal-Mart I purchased it from apparently still has deluxe Wii U's in stock according to their website, so I guess I'll try and return it in the morning.
