Just need some advice

Hello guys,

Last night when I shut down my PC, just before I unplugged it I noticed that the light near the switch on the tower stayed dim (not very bright). Is this normal, it is possible that it has been there and I just haven't noticed it.

Nothing can be wrong as it is working fine, anyway is this normal? Please reply soon.

Sounds like residual power from your power supply.

But is there any thing to worry about or doing any harm?

I'd be more worried that you're unplugging it every night. This is seriously not good for switching mode power supplies... When you plug them back in there is quite the startup surge that can damage the AC side of the supply...

Hahahaha. I just read this. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." According to CommonTater, don't worry about it. Wait until it's broken. J/K :)
