    So I recently got my Microsoft Entertainment Desktop 7000. It is bluetooth if that matters. Anyway, it has a power switch on the bottom of the keyboard and mouse (actually the 8000 version mouse). Both items go into "sleep" mode after a short time of no use. Do I need to ever turn off the power to them via the switch on the bottom or is sleep mode power efficient enough?

    [I don't use it often enough that powering them off with the switch would be much of a hassle, its just for my HTPC]

    just turn it off since you don't use it that often

    sometimes these wireless devices don't enter Sleep mode as you would expect
