Goodbye For Now
Authored by: hexghost on Oct 05, '07 11:25:21AM

Kirk,


Ignore the trolls - they obviously don't run a business or care about where their money goes. As head of IT at my company, we recently instituted a mandatory policy where employees turn off their machines at night when they leave. Since most of them complained about this we let them substitute "off" for "hibernate" (not sleep but actual save-to-disk hibernate). Obviously the servers had to stay on, but just from 25 people turning their monitors and machines off at night we saved over $400 a month - and that's just a conservative estimate, so we're probably saving even more if we took the time to actually measure the power usage. Some people may balk at that amount - but it's the same amount as one of our T1 lines!

The moral is, money is money, and if you don't care about wasted money then you probably don't care about other important things as well!
