When my PC swithes off the optical mouse stays alight.

I have looked in the bios for something that will cure this but no luck.

any ideas?

You can switch off the power to the PC - then it will go off.

Or simply disregard it - it's not a problem. Motherboards are always left with power on them unless power is switched off from the mains.

DieSse is right a lot of new ATX mobo's leave a charge to the +5v, so you can wake the PC from standby, that sort of thing...

Mine would stay on if I let it, but I turn off the computer at the mains...that sorts it out!

Mine also will not allow the computer's screen saver to come on. A request for help from customer services, as is often the case, did not elicit a reply. It seems that even mice and their drivers are now so complicated that they no longer behave as most would expect.
