Razer Mamba 2012 recharging question to anyone who has one? -

I got my Razer Mamba 2012 yesterday and have been using it in both wired initially then wireless mode for around three or four hours now. I think the mouse is terrific, by far the best I've had the pleasure of using to date even if it isn't really worth the asking price (£60 not £100 would be a fairer price IMO).
I have noticed that the wireless receiver/recharger plugs into the PC so I assumed that it would only recharge the mouse while the computer was on. I left my PC on and the mouse recharging in off mode (as per the instructions) and saw the scroll wheel light and wireless receiver/recharger base lighting glow to indicate it was recharging. The green LEDs on the side of the mouse were also cycling. So far, so good.
Before I left for work this morning I turned the mouse off and placed it on the recharger, simply because it looks nice, but expecting nothing to happen as I turned my PC off but left it on at the mains. However, the mouse scroll wheel light pulsed and the greed LEDs cycled as if the mouse was recharging (the recharger base light remained off though as you'd expect).
Question: how can the mouse be recharging if my PC is off? Is this behaviour normal? I mean the mouse is turned off at the switch underneath yet the mouse scroll wheel was lit and pulsing. In the software you can dim that light to conserve power yet my mouse, in its off state, is powering that light! Why?
