well i just bought a new mouse and its a 3D optical mouse
it works good
but for some reson when i turn off my computer the red optical light stays on and on the scroll wheel it has a blue light which stays on after i turn off to.
the way i make the mouse turn off it turning the back siwtch to the computer off or taking out the usb thing out

is this meant to happen or not

Yes it is normal. Sometimes it depends on the USB port as well. I have had motherboards that keeps one set of ports powered all the time (so you can wake up/start the computer with a mouse click), and some that shut off power as well (ie the rear USB ports on the motherboard are on all the time and the motherboard headers to the front port are switched). Every motherboard is different but usually default to a power on state. Might be a possibility of changing the config in BIOS under start/power on options.

I believe what dpunisher was referring to is changing the start/power on settings in the BIOS.

It depends on the manufacturer of the BIOS, they're all a little different.
