I finally tested out Netflix yesterday on the WiiU and i was curious, how do you turn off the WII U Controller without turning off the Wii U? For being able to have the controller off while watching videos using the Wii U, etc.

You can't for Netflix.

The Gamepad does have the option but it also pauses the Netflix movie. To unpause the Netflix movie you have to press a button, which then turns the Gamepad back on.

Hopefully they change this in the future because it is a waste of battery when your watching a movie.
