Do you have to turn on the Game Pad to use the Wii Mote?

I'm planning on playing some Wii games and I was wondering if I have to use the Game Pad before I use the Wii Mote. I don't have my Wii U yet so I can't check.

Nope. You can turn on the Wii U and navigate the home menu with a synced Wii Remote.

Cool! I hear the battery life on the Game Pads really suck and I would hate to turn it on if I'm not gonna be using it.

The GamePad will turn on along with the Wii U, but once you go onto Wii Mode the GamePad will go off.
