Microsoft wheel mouse optical wont turn off after the computer shuts
down.The laser light stays on all night. The motherboard is a ecs p4s5a/dx+
Has anyone had the same problem?
Apparently the usb,or the ps2 ports keep recieving power after shutdown
which keeps the laser light on.I don't know whether there is a simple solution in the cmos or if it needs a bios update.
Thanks for any help.

i also have that problem, but its not a biggy

ive noticed when i use the usb port for my mouse, my mouse stays alive even when my comp is shut down
but when i use the ps2 port for the mouse,at the right side of the keyboard plug, my mouse shuts down

i think it has something todo with the usb powersupplie

That is exactly right. Use the ps2 adapter if it bothers you. I do. Because it bothers me. No other reason.

Thanks guys
I should have mentioned that both usb ports are taken.
One by the usb printer and the other by the usb speakers.
The keyboard is in the ps2 keyboard port and the mouse is in
the ps2 mouse port with the adapter.Its the ps2 port that won't turn the mouse off. Any other suggestions would
be appreciated.

Yeah, mine stays on also with the USP to PS2 adapter. I have everything on a power strip so I just switch it off when it bugs me. It is kinda weird to see it on all the time though....

Yeah. It is a little weird since I just bought a new mobo and not used to it.

in your BIOS, disable "wake from PS/2 mouse". this should not give power after shutdown

Hehe, I know this sounds bad but its good to hear other people with the same problem, sharing an experience. I can't seem to find "wake from ps2 mouse" in the bios unless its hidden somewhere ?
Or does that get added with a newer bios upgrade ?
It does sound like it would fix the problem if i can find it.

My system is the same. Optical mouse on PS/2 port stays on when the system is in standby mode (long as the PSU is switched on in the back). I also have a modded Cuecat scanner connected to the keyboard port and it stays on, also.

I have a similar problem, somewhat. Sometimes my ms mouse randomly shuts off on me alltogether. Then a second later it comes back on, but sometimes it dont and It bothers me. Is something wrong with my mouse?

To disable the light on your optical mouse you must change the jumper for the USB or PS/2 Device Wake Up on your motherboard. Default is on +5VSB. This means that a current is being sent to your PS/2 or USB device and that's why the light is on. If you change the jumper to +5V there wil be no current running.

I had the exact same problem... I even posted a thread on the same... I was told that this was a very common occurence.... nothing to worry about.

May I ask how to change the jumper setting for the above, as I also face the same problem.
Thanks

You have to open your computer up and look for the jumper on your mobo. It is usually close to your PS/2 ports in the top left area by the power supply. If you have your manual for your mobo, look for KBPWR and it will show you exactly where it is suppose to be.

Thanks Mat Nairb, for the quick reply, but when I checked around my mobo, I seem not able to find the jumper for the PS2 around the mobo.

It is normal not to have the jumper nowaday, my mobo is Gigabyte 81848 P-G and I also found out that even when my optical mouse is plugged into all the USB ports, it also lighted up although the PC is shut down, so does it mean the same problem with the jumper or otherwise.

Thanks for any help.
