Switch it off to save cash and the planet is reporting today that the OGC has told government departments that if they power down PCs when not in use they can save over £10m as well as cutting CO2 emissions by 55,723 per annum. I was also reminded at this week's Green Card event of Barclays' admission that they saved £1.5m pa by turning of monitors at night instead of leavin them on screensaver. On an enterprise level, you can use Nightwatchman for this but individuals can act too, by using a solution like intellipanel which powers down all connected peripherals when the PC is switched off and quickly pays for iteself in reduced electricity bills.
