    So yesterday, I started my console, everything was fine. I started the internet explorer, fine.
    But when I got inside the IE, that's when it started to bug. Wherever I taped on the screen, it opened the menu where I can see the tabs that are currently opened. I think it's the second button from the left on the bottom menu.
    So I restarted the console by holding on the power button on the gamepad. and when I started it back on, I couldn't do anything. Buttons and touch screen dont work anymore. It stays to the quick menu.
    I can't do anything anymore :(

    Does anyone can help me please?
    I tryed to unplug completly the console, but it didn't work.
    Also, I use loadiine, but I don't know if it could be the cause.
    Thanks for helping

    Send the GamePad to Ninty, maybe they can fix/replace it.

    So you guys confirm it's a gamepad problem, right?

    Probably. But again, the only way you could test it is if you had another GamePad.

    Well don't you think is a problem? You can't use your game pad. Send it to nintendo or buy a new one, unless you can fix it yourself.

    DO some test on it, Take the battery out, clean the contacts and try again, try running it without battery and use charger, get close or far away from the console. Turn it on or off a few times. Use a wii u pro controller.

    And loadiine won't effct your game pad, you can send it to nintendo. BESIDES, how would nintendo detect you used Loadiine? Is a web exploit that is triggered by files on sd card. It doesn't alter system data internally, only ram data.

    You don't have to send them the whole console. Just the GamePad.
    Also, all of your Loadiine data is stored on the SD Card, and Loadiine works on 5.5.1, so you're fine either way.

    Over use? My wii is on 24 hours a day, and is not even doing anything, If it had like a sleep function like mobile tablets or pc does, that would be nice. :)

    Well, you can do a "Sleep Mode". (Note the bold quotation marks.)
    1. Turn off your TV.
    2. Turn off the display of your GamePad: HOME Menu -> Controller Settings -> Turn Off Display.

    Yeah, the same way i can do "Sleep mode" On every other game consoles. I think ps4 and xbox one are the only two current consoles with proper sleep function.
