I keep my Wii in a case out of reach of children or other people, and use my remote to turn it on and off. Is there a way to turn it off via the remote while playing a gamecube game?

Maybe Gamecube mode disables Wiimote support? If that is the case then there is no hack to do so.

Yes, When your Wii is in gamecube mode, Your Wii becomes A "Gamecube". So Wiimotes will never work.

There are powersockets on the market wich allow on/off switching via an remote.
You can use that.

GameCube Mode indeed disables the Wii Remote entirely, so I'm not sure if a hack is possible.
They said the same thing about the USB ports.

Changing around the System Menu would probably be required to make this hack possible. Maybe devs would even have to program a new GameCube Mode for the Wii that allows custom preferences, such as cheats, slowdown, fast forward, classic controller support, etc.

when in "gamecube mode" there is no bluetooth driver. bluetooth relies on the USB stuff. so, one would have to hack in USB support, then add a bluetooth driver.

on top of that, you would want the wii to remember which wiimotes are synced, so you would want it to read their ID from the settings file in the nand. so now you have to hack in the ability to read blocks from the nand. but those are encrypted, so you need to slap in a bunch of stuff to decrypt them.

by the time youve done all this, you have written a large portion of IOS.

You can do that with Priiloader.

In settings just set ignore standby.
When shutting off the wii with the wiimote, it will shut off completely.

*EDIT* Misunderstood question...

but not in gamecube mode, it basically makes your wii a gamecube, and gamecubes didnt have bluetooth or the ability to turn off with a remote. No priiloader setting will change this.

In other words, to make wiimotes work in gamecube mode you would have to solve the ARAM problem and finish DIOS-MIOS.

And look at the current state of DIOS MIOS... it's not really something 'ideal' as of right now.
dios mios is for sneek you idiot
sneek replaces ios in starlet making A SHIT TON possible
without sneek (or any ios replacement) its impossible

If you read closer you've understood I was referring to the USB ports. In Wii mode. If you do the hack in preloader you shut off your connected HD drive too. ( otherwise it keeps sp nning) Don't get why you thought I was talking about GC mode. Gamecube has nothing to do with USB, physically not possible so..

Next time read all my post in this thread before replying, you've just said what I said a few post before.

All that time researching and coding, when you could have just dragged your ass off the couch and turned it off *gasp* manually

All that time typing when you could have actually read *gasp* the OP.

His Wii is in a closed case and is inaccessible.

This has been thoroughly answered. Although this may seem like a simple request, as giantpune stated, something as seemingly simple as what you're asking for is actually in some aspects more work than DIOS-MIOS (the trade-off being having to write a bluetooth stack from scratch while not having to deal with the mess of patching games or redirecting disk I/O...). Yes, you can access Wii hardware from inside "Gamecube Mode" but it's not nearly the open door solution that most people who are into the Wii scene but don't understand the technical aspects behind it all have grown accustomed to. Sure, it's possible, but nobody's going to put in that kind of effort. MINI doesn't even have a bluetooth stack, and that would have way more practical application than creating one for a cMIOS.
