The Ethernet and mouse stay on because they are powered by the five volt standby supply. This is so that the computer can be turned on by activity on the LAN or mouse if the BIOS is set to do so.

No, the motherboard is designed to operate this way and you will be unable to change it through the BIOS. I normally have the BIOS options you gave set to disabled. The PME option is so you can start the computer with keyboard or mouse activity.
