    Are usb jacks on case supposed t be always on

    Finished setting up 2nd PC with Win 10 clean install thanks to Brink's excellent tutorial....Thanks Brink...!!
    Now this is new to me...When I shut down the box and Windows closes and the monitors box turns off...I noticed my USB connected fan on top (outside) the case is still running ?

    Are the USB slots in the case supposed to be 'hot' all the time ? Seems if I power off and turn off the case at the back switch...there should be nothing left active in the box

    Could this USB fan be running off the case battery ? Seems doubtful

    Any thoughts on my ghost power supply and why the USB exterior case top fan still runs will be greatly appreciated...

    Depends on the Mobo , on my current (and previous 2) Gigabyte boards , the USB ports are always on...they planned and made them this way so you could charge phones etc whilst the PC was turned off.

    Some can be. It's called PowerShare or something like that. The point is, you can still use the ports to charge devices like phones, even if the system is powered off. I would think there is a way to disable this, maybe in the BIOS?

    There is a setting in windows somewhere to turn them off.
    I had the same problem with my laptop ports staying on.
    Have a look in Control panel/power options

    You can turn these off in the Bios settings. They are intended to be available to charge devices when the computer is off. Personally I really like the feature.
