My Mouse light stays on after my Computer is turned off, where does it get the power to stay on ?

Is it suppose to do that ?

Remember back when TV's used to take a long time to turn on? Then they came out with "instant-on" sets. Even though you turned them off, some circuits inside were still powered up. That's the same with many ATX motherboards. Mine has an indicator light built in that remains on unless the machine's unplugged.You'll see many posters when we tell them their power supply is bad, they'll say " but the light on the motherboard is still lit".

Ok, Thanks Mark, I was thinking it was something like that, but was not, sure, . . reason I am asking is that I have been having a NTLDR problem and one of the things it may be caused by is a bad CMOS battery.
