hi, nailed into the back of the laptop, apart from 2 scanners and a printer, I have two HDD's, when i shut the laptop down the HDD's are still lit up,the thing is, are they really shut down, or am i making things worse by switching the lot off at the mains switch...does that make sense...thanks.

Most USB prots will still have power for some reason, but not all the time.

It SHOULD be safe to unplug the system
