Mouse light stays on even when PC is shut down

Recommended Posts

I recently got a new PC (very happy with it, works great) but ran into one problem: The mouse light stays on even when I shut it down. Everything else-- fans, other lights, etc.-- all turn off and the display goes dark, but the mouse continues to shine. I'm not sure why. I've looked through other threads (on Tom's Hardware, but it was having login issues so I couldn't post a thread), and tried suggestions there. However, "Deep Sleep" mode did not fix the issue, "ErP"/"EuP" is nowhere to be found, and I cannot find "Selective Startup" in my Windows settings. (Although it is a Win7 setting, and I have Win10) I would also like to fix this problem without having to purchase any extra USB extenders or peripherals.

 

Specs: (Relevant only, I'll give more if asked) 
Motherboard: ASRock AB350 Pro4
OS: Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) and Xubuntu 16.04 LTS

Mouse: Tecknet Gryphon KB&M combo (Note: Keyboard does not display same issue.)

If the motherboard has a feature where it can charge USB devices even when powered off, then it's likely those ports are providing power and the mouse is remaining on even though nothing's really pinging it.

 

That or the LEDs are wired directly to USB power.

What would such a feature be called? I don't charge my phone through my PC (wall outlet) so I can disable that. I've heard of something called "On/Off Play" but I cannot find it in the BIOS. Would there be a way to just disable USB ports when the system is powered down? That should fix the second potential error.

That happens to me and i dont have a problem with it, but if you do have a problem with it just plug your pc into a power bar and turn off to power to disable your pc's power

I'm actually just unplugging the mouse right now, but I do have a UPS that I plug my PC into. I'd rather not have to add something to do every time I shut down my PC, considering that I do that a couple times daily. I would much prefer having it disable the ports automatically, or some software I can run right before I shut down. (Like a "disable_USB.exe" that I click, then shutdown. I don't know just an idea.)

It doesn't look like there's an option to turn that off if it's the case that the USB ports still supply power.

I've just decided to leave it until I can get a new mouse. Been thinking of upgrading peripherals for a while (actual Cherry MX switches, weighted mouse, higher quality headset, etc.). Hopefully the new hardware will turn off. I haven't seen other people have this issue with the Pro4 mobo that doesn't get fixed with Deep Sleep mode. Thanks for your help anyway.
