Are they idiotic automatic headlights or normal manually operated ones?

It could be some conductive dirt in the switch that's causing it to
think it is on, or a short circuit somewhere in the wiring.

I believe Toyota had a recall to replace the headlight switch when this
incident happened.
Check with the Toyota dealer.

Changing a fuse does nothing unless the problem is that the lights do not
turn on, ever. If an erlectrical load turns ON, then the fuse is never the
problem.

Things that make stuff happen unexpectedly includes climate (extreme hot or
cold can affect things), animals (rodents eat wires), and control devices
(switches and such) that simply wear out.
