Default Mouse stays on, even with computer turned off

I have seen this problem on many computers. Is this a BIOS options or just a bug on some motherboards? My mouse stays on after shutting down.

I don't want unnessesary power consumption and it's annoying.

It wouldnt consume that much power though. It would be annoying when ur trying to sleep unless you cover it or pull it out.
