    Hello.
    Sorry wasnt sure where to post this. Please move this if its in the wrong place.

    Not really a big problem!
    My mouse has a blue light on the scroll wheel. But when i turn the computer off the light on the mouse still stays on but on my old PC it used to turn off. Is there some power thing i need to change in the bios because clearly there is power running through.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Your computer has a section that stays on as long as it is plugged into a wall outlet. This enables the computer to boot up faster when you start it up. One thing you can do is get a power strip and plug everything into the power strip and switch it off when your computer turns off. This will also turn off everything that is plugged into it. I have a special switch and outlet mounted into the wall next to the desk that turns everything either on or off.

    Everything posted by ozrom1e is correct but, It isn't hurting anything to to have the mouse button "glowing" when the system is off. Some motherboards have a green led light on the board that is lit whenever the power cord is plugged in. A power strip will end this but IMO not needed.
