I just assembled a new system with a Tyan S2390B motherboard and athlon cpu.The power supply is atx with a manual rocker switch on back. When I shut down Windows the p.s. fan turns off,but the numeric lock light on the keyboard stays on unless I flip the power supply rocker switch off.Is this normal or is the power supply or motherboard defective? I don't think anything is shorting out and it doesn't appear to be in suspend mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No John it is not normal. It sounds to me that there may be a fault in the auto off switch that somehow allows current to flow in just this circuit. It probably isnt a serious problem but I would try another power supply if you have access to one.

Syncronicity abounds. I had just noticed this same problem on my system this morning. I recently had a major crash, put in a new ATX motherboard, new Certified Data tower and the power supply is a ATXE 250, 115 to 230v current, max current 50 to 60 mghz.

Will wait to see how you fix yours John.
