    What is your ACPI state? Try setting that to one that works via the tutorial I linked. Please notice that there are more tutes at the end of that one.

    Here's more reading if you like: System Power States (Windows)
    The sleep states available for my system are: Standby (S1 S3), Hibernate, Hybrid Sleep, Fast Startup. I'll give those tutorials a read later tonight. I hope it helps me.

    When your PC is turn off, but still connected to power outlet, it has a "Standby power supply" running at all time (+5V)!

    All desktop PC work like that! As long as there is power to your PC's Power Supply, but you have shot down Windows, then
    this standby power supply (+5V) have to be there, so that your PC are able to turn ON again, when you need it!

    This standby power supply (+5V) - supply 5V to all USB connectors, unless set to not do that, in Windows Power setting!

    Allso this +5V will run a standby LED light, normally @ your PC power button, to tell you that it's ready to turn ON!

    If you want all power to be OFF to your PC (= No standby power) then you have to switch off your Power outlet (Wall plug).

    I know what you mean, but I don't think that's the case here. You see, before I bought new PSU and chassis, this thing didn't occur. I think this started happening between buying a new PSU and buying a new chassis.

    I am just explaining how all desktop power supply's work. There will always be a standby power (+5V) and a LED light ON,
    unless you turn OFF the power to the power supply!

    Good news, guys. I fixed it! All I had to do was reset the CMOS data using the onboard jumper. Then, I set up the BIOS for the most crucial things (e.g. setting SATA mode to AHCI, disabling unnecessary onboard devices, or setting the proper boot device). Now, when I shut down my PC, none of my USB devices work afterward. I guess I must've messed up some BIOS settings. I was also pointing out the wrong suspects. Nevertheless, I want to thank you all for your concern and help. Even though your pieces of advice didn't help me with my problem, I did learn valuable things. Thanks again. Problem SOLVED!

    That's good news, rzepek2pl. Good thinking!

    I just learned something as well. :)

    It was an accident, rather than good thinking. I was goofing around with the chassis cables and I came across the CMOS jumper. I thought to myself, "What the hell, I might as well try." It's that kind of dumb ideas that helps the most.

    LOL! Yes, sometimes it's that way. :)

    Quick edit: Alongside the reset CMOS, I still need to have the Fast Startup disabled (I re-enabled it after I thought I'd succeeded, the problem reoccurred). Fortunately, the difference is little to none, so I don't mind it being off.
