is it normal for the amber light to stay on for so long?

I've noticed the Wii U's power light changes to an amber color after powering down sometimes like on the original Wii when the system's WiiConnect24 feature was turned on. Normally my Wii U's amber light only stays on for a few seconds after powering down, but this time it stayed on for a good couple of minutes before finally changing back to red. Is it normal for it to stay on for that long?

My Wii U has been doing that ever since I downloaded the Signature Weapons Pack DLC for REvelations and linked my game to RE.NET.

Yeah the last Wii U firmware update made it possible for the Wii U to perform updates while it was "off". The amber light simply means that it's downloading (or perhaps uploading data also). If it's on for a while it probably means it's downloading a patch for one of your games!
