Ok so I was downloading the Fifa demo and I went into Mii Maker.
I left my Wii U for about 1 hour and a 7 minutes.
Came back and it was frozen and I couldn't leave mii maker, go to the home screen or anything.

I help power down on my gamepad and it turned off but the Wii U still stayed on.
So I turned my gamepad back on and it was still frozen.
I decided to power it down on the Wii U and hel power down a few times even going as far as holding it for 45 seconds but nothing.

I even tried a combination of holding down eject and power but it still didn't turn off.
So I just grit my teeth and unplugged it >_>

It turned on fine BUT I wanted to know how exactly do I hard reset it so I know for the future if it happens again...

I mean I know how to hard reset my ps3 and xbox which just involves holding down power for a while.

But why doesn't this work on the wii u?

Unplug it. That's all =/

I've been lucky actually, I had heaps of crashes on launch day (November 30th) but I've not had any since the first update =)

I'm even more lucky, my Wii U haven't crashed at all :P

Turn your languages in Miiverse and the "in-game" settings to "English Only". this helps prevent freezing

All you can do is unplug it and plug it back in.
