hmm... why would it be unsafe to do what you're supposed to?

Nintendo said that you could do that, so i suppose you can. It would be a good idea to make sure that the fan (if it has a fan) isn't blocked. You can keep a gamecube on for very long periods of time without it over-heating or becoming damaged, so I'm sure the wii could do even better.

There's no reason not to. Nintendo wouldn't make that function if it were dangerous. The PS2 has a standby mode and nobody freaks about that, and even a lot of tv's and DVD players have it. And it has to be in standby mode to get updates, which is another reason this is a stupid question.
