In your case, it sounds like these jumpers (if they exist) are set to +5VSB (ie the StandBy +5V that the PSU supplies to the mobo as long as it's connected to the mains.) Changing them to +5V will mean power is sent to the USB ports only when the system is booted-up.
The only use I've ever seen for powering USB ports from +5VSB is so that systems can be powered-up by a USB keyboard.

There one near every set of usb ports so you can even leave some disconnected if you want.
