This computer has always had a wireless mouse. It had an on/off switch on the bottom of it and we always turned it off when not using it. Well, the thing finally quit working so I picked up a new one. Very much like the old one, but a different brand. This one also has the on/off switch, but it's so tiny one can hardly get hold of it to turn it on.
The point of all this rambling is to ask--do most people just leave them on all the time? We always assumed you were supposed to turn it off when not using it in order to extend the battery life. But it doesn't look like this one was intended to be used much.

I never turn mine off. It does not harm anything to leave them on. Batteries last quite a while and you do not have to fool around with a tiny switch.
Just my personal observation.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thanks! I had kind of assumed that, since they made the switch so tiny. Thanks for confirming that.

Mine goes dormant when not in use and the battery lasts longer than Alvin's. nanner
