Since I got my new pc for over a month when I shut it down it keeps my peripherals rgb lights on and I think that's gonna cost too much electricity. So when I turn off my pc, after it turned off I flip the switch on my power supply so my lights won't stay on all the time. But is it bad for your pc's stability to turn off my power supply everytime I shut it down?

are you refering to the pulsing lights on the motherboard , in recent years the majority of new mobos have lights that stay on even when your pc is turned off , the mobo is still feeding a small amount of electricity to your usb sockets , if you want to you can use the usb sockets to charge a phone or tablet even when the pc is off.

I'm referring to my keyboard and mouse lights. They are always turned on even after I turn off my pc. When I searched in my bios to turn off that setting it only had a 'deep sleep' mode where it completely turns off my pc but it also says that it could be bad for the pc's stability. So I won't do it to ruin my performance.

if you really want to stop the lights from been on when pc is off then it might be worth contacting manufactures , cant imagine your the only person this has happen to so they may know of a fix.
