I think you can disconnect it after it goes to sleep if you really want. At least my code saves tank data to EEPROM just before going to sleep.
When I measured current consumption, it was 20mA when backlight was off but mpguino was "on", when it went to sleep, it consumed 5mA.
So if you are worried draining your battery when bike sits unused more than 1-2days, you can disconnect it when it is sleeping.
