Green Your Workplace: Shut Down That PC
Tip #2: Maximize computer efficiency.
Computers in the business sector waste $1 billion worth of electricity per year, so make it a habit to turn off your computer — and the power strip it's plugged into — when you leave work for the day. Otherwise you'll still be burning energy even if you're not burning the midnight oil. During the day, setting your computer to go to sleep during short breaks can cut energy use 70%. Remember, screen savers don't save energy.
