OzziesMAC Level 2 Level 2

I leave my Mac on 24/7 but sometimes I maybe away from it for a week or 2.  I usually turn off the BT keyboard and mouse to save battery.

I was told that it puts itself to sleep when not in use so turning it off is not needed.  Does anybody no for sure if there is any battery savings

in turning it off vs leaving it on in sleep mode?

One less battery. All the difference.

The Apple Wireless Keyboard now requires just two AA batteries — one less than the previous model. And its intelligent power management system conserves battery life. So when you’re not using it, the keyboard automatically powers down. The instant you start typing, your keyboard turns on.

note, powers down, not goes to sleep.
