Properly shutdown

When I shutdown my pc from Linux all the lights on my devices (mouse, keyboard) and on the back (network devices etc.) stay on. From Windows they all turn off.

Any thoughts on how to fix this?

That's usually a symptom that APM or ACPI is not interacting with the kernel correctly. Check 'dmesg' after a boot to see if there are problems enabling either APM or ACPI (whichever your PC uses).
