Poll: How Often.. I Used the light switch going to the basement office.
Authored by: jon.pdx on Oct 04, '07 09:42:29AM

Hello everyone,

When I setup our dsl connection, the manual for the cisco modem noted that the most secure state was, of course, when the device was turned off.

So that caused me to hook it up to the light going down to office. That way at the end of the day or during vacation the dsl connection was off just because people would turn out the lights on their way out.

In terms of power consumption, I left the router on all the time. In general we do turn most electronic appliances off. My guess is that with each generation of energy star goals, turning appliances off will matter less and less.
