...I think they are called "Magic" mice? Anyway, I have the most newbie question ever. When not in use, should I turn the mouse off? Or just leave it on so whenever I open my Macbook it works?

Turning it off will extend the battery life... but it's up to you

I just picked up one myself and was wondering if it goes into a sleep mode after a while of inactivity.

I've noticed that with mine, if I dont use it for a bit (maybe over 30 minutes?) it takes a second to kick back on and I notice that the little green LED turns back on. So I'm assuming they do go to sleep.

i've got mine since new, so i dont remember how much i paid for it.

sadly i accientaly got ink all over it and cleaned it with acetone. big mistake. it lost its glossy look. i wonder if i can get it polished.

i thought it was called a magic mouse only on the bluetooth models, since no wires it looks like magic.
