1. Go into device manager 2. Double click universal serial controllers 3. Right click on USB root hub 5. Click properties 5. Click power management 6. Check the box which says allow the computer turn off this device to save power

I know on a couple of my laptops their is an option in the BIOS that allows the USB to provide power when the laptop is off (for charging USB devices) maybe this is what is going on.
