Malaysian Airlines MH370 contact lost

Folks: why would an apparently competent crew turns off ACARS and transponder but seemingly "forget" about SATCOM (assuming this is indeed the satellite feed the authorities are referring to - I have not seen any formal reference to IMARSAT) ? And in the case it was not a deliberate act is there any scenario that would take off ACARS and transponder yet allow the aircraft to fly for another 4-5 hours ?! I can't think of any...
Really really weird one !
