Tower fans still running when power cable removed

I bought a Belkin 6 port firewire hub today and connected it via my Firewire and USB dual card in my tower. When I came to shut down my machine, although the pc was off, the internal fans were still working.

Removing the power cable didn't change things either. It wasn't until putting the firewire cable into my other spare firewire port on a non belkin card did the fans stop.

Any one got any ideas. Why is power being transferred from the firewire hub via firewire cable (6pin to 6pin) on the Belkin card?
