IP address allocation shows incorrect device status

I am using a 2wire 3600HGV router. In the admin page, Under Settings->LAN->IP Address Allocation, the router is telling me my notebook "Device Status" is "Connected DHCP" even though it is obviously turned off. Is the device being MAC spoofed by my neighbor or something? What is going on?

More than likely while the computer is off the DHCP lease is still showing there.

It could be the DHCP lease and it could also be the 2wire itself. My experience has shown that the 2wire device list is notorious for lagging reality for whatever reasons. If you monitor these sorts of things it could be unsettling.
