Grounding for PC building

If I use a surge protector and turn said surge protector's on/off switch off. Will whatever I connect to the surge protector still be grounded?

Or in another way to say it. Does turning the on/off switch off on a surge protector turn off the grounding for whatever is connected into it?

My surge protector (when the switch is turned on) indicates that my outlet is grounded. Only when I turn the the switch off it doesn't indicate whether or not it is grounded (this is probably due to the fact that no electricity is going through the surge protector)

So my main question is this. Does the ground wire get blocked from the appliances plugged into the surge protector, when you set the switch on the surge protector off or only other two prongs?

  1. It depends on if the power outlet is properly wired. You can purchase "ground tester" and plug it into the outlet to see if it is grounded.
