I have this happen to me with some usb ports and keyboards and mice.
I think some boards must still supply a little power to the devices.

Its normal. Some systems can also charge things like mobiles / Ipods when they're off. When you plug something into a USB port

Short answer, the PC isnt 100% off until you flick the switch on the wall.
Its power supply is in a sort of wait mode.

Same with the TV, the DVD/VCR etc etc etc

Yes it's normal depending on the motherboard.

Some have jumpers you can set to choose if you want your keyboard powered on all the time or not.
