I just checked. The group does not receive mouseUp from the engine. (It doesn't receive closeField either just as an aside. ;-) So I think the almost transparent button at the back of the group will have to be your only option.

If it DOES, then set the background color of the group to 255.255.254. Otherwise it's transparent/unclickable. Otherwise just add an (almost) transparent button behind all the other objects in the group.
