    I tried googling this right after I bought my new iMac (on black friday). There is a little switch at the bottom of the magic mouse for turning it on/off. My question is every time I turn off my computer should I switch the button to the off position? Is there any benefit from leaving it on/off?

    I believe you don't have to turn it off every night or whenever you turn your computer off as it puts itself to sleep and manager that very well.

    I don't yet own the magic mouse as it will arrive with my new imac, but i've read somewhere on french forums that there is no need to turn it off.

    When I put my iMac to sleep

    I also put a little blanket, a sock, over the Magic Mouse so it doesn't get cold at night. :rolleyes:

    It appears that the Mouse and Keyboard both go to sleep with the iMac, and a gentle touch to either immediately wakes up the iMac. I'm surprised at how fast the iMac comes out of sleep mode and is ready go. :D

    I'm really enjoying both the Mouse and keyboard. I find the Magic Mouse is like having a Touch Pad for my desktop. :cool::cool::cool:

    That ON/OFF switch is when you are carrying the mouse in a bag and dont want it to be ON all the time since you have movement.
