    Mouse seems on while PC is off! Huh?

    This is odd but I've occasionally noticed over the past few weeks , not everyday, seeing my PC's red "on" indicator light glowing even though the PC is off. It doesn't seem like the PC is actually on as I can hit the keyboard & move the mouse with nothing happening, the PC indeed seems off. As soon as I power up, the red indicator light goes off & only lights up again just before arriving at the desktop.

    I have scanned my PC with Malwarebytes Pro & Windows Defender with no viruses detected. Not sure if I should be concerned or not.

    Should I be?
