Default Mouse and Keyboard Power always on?

When i turn off my computer, my mouse and keyboard are always on. Is there any way to make them shut off without unpluggin the power switch (not even the power switch on the back turns them off).

Err, I suppose what you have is wireless keyboard/mouse.
Only way I know of turning them off is taking the batteries out lol.
This is unless of course they bring some sort of swith or something.

They are taking power off the 5VSB rail. Your mobo may have jumpers to disable this.
