Poll: How Often Do You Turn Off the Power to Your Internet Connection?
Authored by: dandyrandy on Oct 04, '07 01:28:18PM

Computers are all off overnight, butI leave the router and cable modem on, as I have a Roku Soundbridge at my bedside and I listen to various Internet audio streams that way.

But when I leave the house I turn the power at the switchbox off on everything but the refrigerator and the smoke alarms. Saves a TON of money on electricity! (switchbox is easily accessed in my interior hallway).

But if you have AC, is it really better? I've heard that powering off and on AC every day uses more energy than leaving it on. I can understand about the other appliances and gadgets, though.
