XIII wrote:How do you turn your PC off?
I have the same problem when I switch it off with the front button (which I have to hold for five seconds), but not when I turn it off using the switch on the back.
Actually, I don't think it is really off when using the front button, since I can turn it on again with the same button then, which is not possible when switched off on the back.
I can use an answer too

Out of curiousity, does your computer have a USB keyboard, and is it set up to power up from a keyboard power key or key combination (this setting would be in the BIOS)? If that is the case, using a PS/2 keyboard or disabling the power-on from keyboard function might cause this problem to occur.
XIII: The above suggestions should apply to you, too. You're right; there's a small amount of power running to the computer if you don't turn the computer off at the power supply. This is equivilant to actually unplugging the computer. However, there's no reason to turn off the power supply unless you're upgrading or repairing the hardware. Actually, your computer's CMOS battery may die more quickly if you turn off the computer at the power supply.

Happens to me as well, it's not a problem with your mouse or anything, stupid WinXP leaves the PS/2 ports(actually on stand-by) powered after shut down.
