Default Can this remote keyboard be turned off?

I recently bought a logitech MX 5500 revolution remote keyboard (bluetooth). It works great. The only thing I am worried about is I can't find an off key, so it it always on showing the time.
Is this brand of keyboard supposed to be on all the time? It runs on 4 AA batteries, and I have heard complaints the batteries don't last long.

Thanks

Is this the keyboard?


If yes, the button on the upper right is the power key.

Yes Jo that is my keyboard.

I think I miscommunicated. The button you refer to I believe powers down the pc. I want to turn off the keyboard itself.

The instructions have no shutoff button, maybe this keyboard is not supposed to turn off?

From what I heard here: logitech mx5500 - Other-Peripherals - Computer-Peripherals

It won't drain the battery. Unless you are typing 24/7

I have something similar on my wireless EeeBox wireless keyboard. It does not have an on/off switch. (came with the unit)
Haven't replaced the battery yet in 2 months.
