    I dont understand your english so well, but the battery holds for many months and you dont really need to turn it off.

    I don't have the wireless keyboard, but, if you do turn it off after the computer shuts off, then turn the computer back on, I would assume the keyboard would turn on automatically each time. The battery must last a long time too. It's too bad its not rechargeable with a USB cable. Hopefully apple can add that feature to the next one.

    You have to press the pwer botton for 3 seconds in order to turn off the wireless keyboard.

    I don't think it will turn itself on when you turn on the MAC. Instead, the MAC will complain that there is no keyboard found.

    I have this keyboard and when I am not using it, I do turn it off. Hold button for 3 - 4 seconds until the little green led light goes out. I'm cheap and want the batteries to last as long as possible. I have now had it for a month and in sys-preferences, I have 4 out of 5 bars for battery life. Which I think is great.

    So technically you get about 2, 2 1/2 months of battery life without turning it off. That's not bad. It's too bad it doesnt turn off automatically after a certain amount of time of no use.
