    Question OPUS 150 watt, USB stays powered???

    I recently purchased an OPUS 150 watt SFX-1215 for my Shuttle X. I finally got it installed and everything appears to work properly. But, there always one or more buts, I put a USB hub that has a blue light on it and the light stays on even though the rest of the puter appears to be shut down. If the blue light is remaining on possibly something else may be on. In any case, it must be pulling a load from the battery.
    The green test light on the OPUS indicates all is well. Steady on when the puter is on. 1 flashes every 2.5 seconds as it is in standby state after the puter shuts down. This stays flashing for a little while and then stops.
    The USB blue light stays on.
    Anybody have an answer?
    I will email Kris at OPUS but was hoping for an answer tonight.
    Thanks,
    Gary

    Got the now obvious answer from Kris:
    SFX-1215 maintains the standby power at all times as specified in ATX specifications. One way to get around this problem is to power the hub from +5V main supply that is available on the drive power connector.
    I start using the brain next year,
