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.

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