Why Does My Stereo Turn On By Itself?

Good Questions

Q: I have a wireless Samsung tube stereo. At 1:26am one night, I woke up to music being played through my stereo. I checked my iPhone and iPad,  and neither one was playing, but a song from my playlist was coming through the stereo. I had to turn off the power to get it to stop. I can't get my devices to pair with this system at the best of times, so how can this happen? It actually really scared me — I thought someone had broken in....to play jazz on my stereo in the middle of the night?
