    Hello,


    I just bought a new motherboard and for some reason the mouse/nic port
    light stays on all of the time. This causes my optical mouse to
    constantly stay on... Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this...
    It's a soyo motherboard, I have been to their website but there was no
    info there. Also, I looked in the control panel under power options
    and in the CMOS to change a setting, but I can't find the solution
    anywhere.... Please help if you know the answer.



    Thanks,


    Primster

    It seems to me that the led light will burn out a lot faster.... or it
    seems as though it's wasting electricity.

    The reason it's on is because that board supports keyboard power-on.

    As to "burn out a lot faster" - Why, sure. It might only last 10
    years, instead of 15 or 20. But the WIRE to the mouse will break a lot
    quicker, so that's nothing important.

    As to "waste electricity" - Do you have any nightlights in your
    house? Turn one off. You're at a net GAIN now ...

  5. I own a Logitech Optical Mouse. I'm not sure what kind you have, or whether
    it could be considered normal for your mouse, but mine stays on all the
    time. It always has, I'm fairly certain its sopposed to. You think it's
    annoying for you, mine is wireless, so it is a constant drain on the
    battery.
