How do you know they are on (sound or sight). Unplugging the computer from the wall should make them turn off.

Sometimes a laptop fan will keep running until it is cool enough. (don't know if it is a laptop or desktop).

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

Has it always done this? If so I'd be tempted to say it's a design consideration to cool the thing down as best possible even after it's off, it's rare but I've seen it on occasion.

Other than that and if you want to disable it, my best guess is it's probably a BIOS setting somewhere (I assume windows is shutting down properly and everything, the fans are just still on?)
