I’ve also been through the manual, no switches I’d love to know exactly what has been broken and how, and just not reboot while charging a phone in future. A funny thing, is that if I stop my card reader through XP’s “Safely remove ussb – it turns of, and stay of, when I shut the PC down.

Think it time to follow the advice in Absic’s tag line, but I might introduce a cigarette as well. Another thought, have you tried doing an extended clear of CMOS? Surely USB gq-ma78g-ds3h are meant to be active when a system is off so you can charge an iPod or other device via the PC without it being on! Thanks for the suggestions.
