    Hi,

    I've had my new computer up and running for 4 days now and haven't noticed any probs, but I have found one curiosity. Whenever I shut down my system the lights on my optic mouse stay on .. I've had the mouse attached to 3 other systems and when they shut down the mouse goes off but not on my new system. I don't think this is of any real concern but I am wondering why it is doing this. If anyone has any guesses, please share them with me.

    Thanx

    It's not a problem. I've seen computers do this. The thing is that the mobo doesn't turn off the 5V on the USB for some reason. The mobo allways has 5V from the PSU (if you have an ATX) when it's turned off, unless you pull the plug.
