This might be a dumb question but,Do you have to turn off a wireless mouse with the on/off button after each use to save the battery?

Depends. My wireless mouse shuts itself off after a period of no use.
In my PC corner for the winter, gaming and knitting.

What do the instructions say? I've never used one so I can't say either way. To my way of thinking, though, if its off the battery isn't being drained. Unless it has an automatic idle/shut off/etc. mode, the circuitry will draw power.
If something gets your goat, it just proves you have a goat to get.
