Poll: How Often Do You Turn Off the Power to Your Internet Connection?
Authored by: Peganthyrus on Oct 04, '07 08:39:06PM
It was hard enough just getting my Windows-using boyfriends to set their monitors to sleep. And they like media, so there's usually a download going. Which means their computers stay on.

I can't even get them to turn off the kitchen light when they go to bed, ferchrissake. And yet one of them is neurotic about energy efficiency and insisted on replacing every bulb in the house with fluorescents. He can replace the incandescent in my studio with a fluorescent when they come in a pleasing spectrum, and when he starts putting his wind tunnel of a PC to sleep at night.

That mini-rant aside, I've always left the router on. It just sits there in the corner doing its thing and requires no interaction unless something's gone awry, just the way I like it.
