I went to Start > Shut Down as is normal, the computer went thru its shutoff sequence and shut down --- completely, no fans, no lights, and ALL peripherals (printer, Scanner) were off --- YET there was a blinking cursor in the upper left corner of the screen!
I hit the 'On' button, restarted the computer, then when everything loaded, I shut it down as I normally do, and no cursor this time, everything was fine.

So, the question is: why was I getting the cursor with the computer/peripheral's off?

Gary R,
You should keep an eye on this, it could be a sign of the POWER SUPPLY going bad. I've seen systems where the harddrive would keep running when everything else shuts down. And the next time you shut down the PS FAN would keep running and everything else would shut down. The cure was replacing the power supply.
