[vox-tech] Problem - PS/2 port still live after shutdown

Hi everyone.

When Linux shutsdown with halt -p, my pc will turn off, 
 but Linux won't switch off the power to my PS/2 port. It is 
 turned on when X starts, but when X shuts down, or the PC 
 is shut down, the port remains on - and my Optical Mouse 
 stays on. Light remains glowing, etc.
 .... However, Windows 98SE will shut this down properly 
 every time. I have kernel 2.4.20 and have tried enabling ACPI 
 and APM. And of course I have an ATX PSU, and nothing weird 
 enabled either in cmos or jumpered. 
 I know that some boards just have power going through PS/2 
 ports after soft shutdown as a feature/bug, but Win98SE manages 
 to shut down this one ok. 
If someone knows how to fix this, I would really appreciate your 
Thanks in advance.
