Do I have to turn on the GamePAd if I want to play normal wii games?

YEah, topic.

The gamepad is a MUST right?

No way to jump straight up to the wii menu and not need the game pad? Having a wii mote around wouldn't help?

You can use a Wii remote to go to the Wii mode, without using the Gamepad. It will still turn on with the system though.

But If I don't HAVE the gamepad around? meaning maybe I want to take the wii u to my parents house and not carry the gamepad around... could I still turn it on? Or would I get a message on screen saying "NO gamepad detected"?

here's an idea - test it. turn on the wii u with the gamepad at the other end of the house, then you'll know what happens.

Remove the batteries from the Wii U pad then?

As long as your wiiu is set to auto log you in, you don't need gasmepad. Only way to input password is gamepad
