All new boards leave the usb hot. It draws from the +5VSB of your powersupply. The only fix for most boards is to flip the switch on the back of the powersupply. It isn't a problem there is no glitch your system is doing exactly what it was designed to do.

On some motherboards there is a switch or jumper to enable/disable +5VSB for USB. My motherboard doesn't provide +5VSB to USB which kinda sucks cause I can't charge my mouse with my PC off.

If you set these jumpers to +5V, it should only provide power to USB while the PC is on if I'm reading that right. This is only going to affect USB devices. Your PC will still use some power. The only way to use no power would be to flip the switch on the PSU.

Simply do a normal shut down and then put the switch on the PSU and/or power plug extender on "off".

That is because the external HDD doesn't get power from the computer. Get a power chord with multiple outlets and a power switch on it and switch it off when you're not using it.

No, it did shut down 100% with my asrock mb, an connected to my laptop it also shuts down 100%
So it's a smaller drive that gets the power from USB? If so yes it wouldn't shut down if the USB power doensn't shut down. Look at maban's post above.

ok ive had a adapted laptop HD for external storage and whenever id power off the laptop the drive wouldnt power down till i flipped the switch on the drive itself(because it was running off of wall power) if the device is USB powered and the machines USB ports dont shut off after power down the drive wont shut down in most cases.

Easiest solution is to use the power switch on the external drive itself or just unplug the drive from the USB port

people need to stop explaining this. the points already been made - the USB ports staying on is normal behaviour, done so that people can charge their phones and such.

he needs to do his own work here in finding a solution that works for him out of the ones provided, repeating the information is getting us nowhere.

I ALWAYS cut the power to the computer when off & in most cases is the best unless you need to wake by LAN or charge something via USB
In my case due the mouse top LED stayed on, then I always do that and better, beside the PC doesn't consume any standby power which can be relatively high as on TVs and such.

if you want to totally disconnect, turn off the PSU from the back.

my computer in S3 sleep state only uses 6W of power.


yes, you save power by turning it off at the wall - but its not a lot.
