    Try a different USB port. You may have used one that is set up as a USB power point for recharging devices even when the system is shut down.

    Thanks for reply
    Yes I have tried all the available USB ports and they are all powered on. Why they do this?

    This is done so people can wake up the PC using their USB keyboard/mouse.

    Under Power options in BIOS you can try disabling "Power On By Keyboard" and "Power On By Mouse". You can also try enabling "ErP".
