Chances are, there is a period of time during the work day that you are not actually using your computer. By activating the sleep mode, you can reduce your computer’s electricity consumption by 95%!
Here’s one example (keep in mind, these are just estimates):
If you leave your desktop PC, monitor and printer on 24 hours per day, you’ll use 108kWh- encountering a monthly cost of almost $10.00.
If you use that same computer 3 hours a day and it stays on sleep mode the rest of the day, you’ll only use a mere 18kWh- encountering a cost of $1.64.
Guides on how to enable energy saving features for your computer can be found on the Energy Star website.
