    Sleep Mode in Maximus X Hero

    I’m new to computer building and just finished a build using the Maximus X hero with a EVGA 850 Power supply. When i shut down the computer in windows or using the power switch on case the computer shuts down but the MB and GPU still show LED and the MB LEDS glows and “Breath”. I would have to shut off the Power supply with PS switch to shut down the system completely.
    Is this something that’s normal and should I turn off PS switch ? And is there a setting in Bios to change it ?

    This is normal...there is a setting within the bios under ROG led effects that you can enable to turn the light off when in sleep or shut down

    Is it safe to leave the power on and power running through the components ? Or safer to switch off power supply ?
