I guess the Apple Magic Mouse will turn itself off automatically to save power. However I am not sure whether it is woke up by movement, or by a human finger touch...

I carry my MacBook and Magic Mouse in my backpack. So should I turn it off to save power when I am on the street? Or it's clever enough to keep sleeping if no body touches it?

It may awaken from being moved with the bottom against something close enough to make it think it is being moved across a surface. So just to be safe, you might want to turn it off.
