Unplug the PC ?

I know the motherboard keeps power on when the PC is off but its never occurred to me that the USB might still be powered, I thought it would be off.

I'm sorry I don't know the answer.

Its a Lappy.

Lappy ? Oh, you mean laptop.

Try unplugging the USB device, that should stop it drawing power :)

PC = unplug it / switch off at socket

Laptop = remove battery

You don't have to remove the battery. All you have to do is unplug the USB device in question. If it is not plugged into the laptop it cannot draw power from it (or have I missed something somewhere?).

I noticed this a long time ago, when having switched my PC off, my printer and scanner, which I had`nt switched off, still had lights on so I just unplugged the PC and off they went. When I switched on the power on the next visit, the scanner and printer lights both came on. Like everyone says, switch everything off.

Sorry, I should have said that both scanner and printer are USB powered.
