Poll: How Often Do You Turn Off the Power to Your Internet Connection?
Authored by: NicholasSegura on Oct 05, '07 09:02:02AM

I thought about this as I was setting up my home office. During the day, I can sometimes hear the whir of my external hard drive which is plugged into my router. This sound has made me conscience of how much energy it is using. Therefore I have plugged all of my devices into on of those powersticks that can handle 6 or so devices and before I go to bed at night I simply turn off the switch. The monitor, router, printer, external hard drive, speakers all go off at once. I save money, then environment, and don't waste unutilized electricity. Granted there are people who need there computers to be on all the time, but I would bet that there are MORE people who could simply turn everything off with the flick of a switch. I wouldn't leave my water running all night, even though I get it for free!? It's 2007 world! If you can avoid being wasteful, be conscience and help us all out.
