    Silly Magic Mouse question...
    ...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?

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    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.

    They do go to sleep BUT only after some considerable time, so yes you should get in the habit of turning it off if you're going to be away for more than 30 minutes.

    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.

    cheers.
