    Does anyone know if the apple wireless keyboard shuts-down or conserves power automatically? I just recently purchased it and I find it a hassle to keep turning the keyboard over to shut off the power each time.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    You do not need to shut it off every time. Just leave it on and it conserves its own power. I have had my Apple Bluetooth keyboard for almost a year and under average use, I have only had to replace the batteries once or twice!

    I've never owned a Apple BT keyboard, but I'm assuming that you don't need to worry about it too much. My BT mouse batterly lasts about four or five months at a time without needing a battery replacement (I don't bother turning it off).
