Turn your PCs off at night

We hear about leaving TVs on stand-by; PCs are just as bad.

Workers who leave their PCs on overnight are causing spiralling electricity bills and extended greenhouse damage to the environment.

The report found that workers did not turn off their PCs for five main reasons:

  • They couldn’t be bothered (17.5 percent)
  • No-one else in their office did (10 percent)
  • Because it’s unimportant (10 percent)
  • They forget (8 percent)
  • They are afraid of losing their work (1.8 percent)

Well, you should save your work before you leave for the evening anyway.
