      What? It's quite annoying.

        AH! I could just turn it off, then unplug it! does that hurt computers?

        Nope. That's always an option. But as you say, don't pull the plug until the system is indeed OFF. One other option - use a power strip (as I do on all systems).

          I have a power strip/serge protector, but it controls stuff I can't turn off.

          You could always get another power strip. Doesn't have to be an expensive one.
