    Quick question about wireless mice.

    I'm currently using a wireless mouse that connects via a USB dongle. The mouse is old and is going to get replaced pretty quick. I was considering getting a bluetooth mouse (as it saves a USB port and carryign the dongle in my bag) i'm just wondering how much leaving Bluetooth on all the time drains the battery in the macbook? Is it a significant amount?

    My MB is new to me and I've had my wireless Mighty Mouse almost the entire time I've had the MB. I can't compare too accurately in Bluetooth vs. non, but I still find that the battery life is incredible. That said... I come from most recently using an Acer laptop which had a battery life of about 40 minutes... so I could just be overwhelmed by MB goodness!
