Thunder Strike Turned On My TV

I have googled this but I can't come up with anything. It was storming last night, thunder and lightning strikes. I had just turned in, half asleep and suddenly TV turns on, right in front of me, after one of the strikes. The TV is Hitachi LED but not smart. It has no program to turn on at x-time. How is this possible, discounting a ghost strike as there ain't paranomal going ons here?

Most modern TV's are never totally off unless you unplug them.
The power supply is alive.
So if a stray bit of juice (known as a glitch) from a strike switches the IC/transistor that controls the power to the rest of the unit it turns on.
