USB mouse remains on after computer shutdown.
« on: July 02, 2014, 06:30:24 am »
Hello everyone, I am having this problem with Peppermin 5. I have a dual boot install with Windows 7.
Every time I shutdown the computer from Linux everything is off but my usb mouse is on, I see the light is still on. If I unplug the mouse and plug it in another usb port the light is off, if I plug it back in the first port it turns on. So it seems that all the other 5 usb ports are off except the one the mouse is connected.
This problem never happens when I shutdown the computer from windows 7, everything is off.
I have had the exact problem with Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Mint, Fedora, etc...

Anyone has the same problem? How can I solve it?

P.S. I am using a desktop Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo, AMD Phenom x3 2.1 GHz.
I have changed the power management in my BIOS from BIOS controlled to ACPI.

Is there anything in your BIOS that mentions "ErP/EuP Ready" ?

If so, try setting it to "Enabled".

Unfortunately I don't have that option in my BIOS.
Will this cause any problem to my computer?

Is there any BIOS options for "Wake from keyboard" etc.

These also keep input devices powered, so movement can cause a resume .. though that doesn't really explain why it doesn't do it under windows.

No it's not going to harm your PC .. in fact as previously suggested, PC's rarely completely shut down these days, they just go into a low form of standby.

I have dis-activated all options to wake up the system from keyboard or usb.
As I mentioned I have a AMD desktop, do you think installing the 64 bit version of Peppermint OS might solve this issue ? (currently I have installed the 32 bit version). :-\

I doubt it .. in any case it's nothing to worry about.

Is this a laptop or desktop ?

I have a desktop!
So I guess I shouldn't worry about my battery!  ;)

Seriously .. my desktop does the same and has for years ;)

Who knows .. it might even be a "feature" so you can charge USB devices with the PC turned off

Yes, I thought about that too, I can recharge my tablet and I don't have to keep my computer on all the night.  :)

I have a flashy, glowy gaming mouse, I have to place it in a drawer every night due to it constantly being powered by the pc.
