Power surge or something of the sort perhaps? I remember a few years back, I went to touch the power button on my computer case, static caused a shock, and the power turned on.

This seems likely, some sort of interference, maybe someone passing your house even. I've had some weird occurrences with Wii remote connections before, so many things use Bluetooth now...

You can turn the GamePad on even if the console it off if you press the TV button.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Surprisingly enough, Broadcom created a new type of wireless radio which was incorporated int the Wii U (in addition to conventional bluetooth) to stream video and other information between the gamepad and the system itself. This also explains the more limited range of the game-pad.

Recently Completed - The Legend of Zelda:A Link Between Worlds - honestly, I was more surprised by the low difficulty, rather than the ending
