    PS2 keyboard/mouse


    OK...here's a weird one. On my son's PC, which used to be my old PC, has a problem with the PS2 keyboard and mouse staying on after the PC is turned off...the lights are still on.

    The only thing different when I had it was the keyboard and muse and the OS....I use a logitech G510 and a Razer DeathAdder, both USB and the OS was 7 Ultimate 64 bit. My sons system is running 7 Pro 64 bit and using an old OEM HP keyboard/mouse.

    It's no big deal...but very very frustrating that I can't track down what's causing it.

    it is probably in the bios settings for power since it is set to probably let you turn the pc back on by hitting the keyboard. older motherboards this was very common its called something like power on by mouse/keyboard. like this one see how it says power up, on the bottom options.
