Earth-Friendly Friday

Did you know that computer equipment can use energy even when it's turned off?

Well, you can cut off that drain by connecting your PC, monitor, and peripherals to a single power strip; when they're not in use, turn the strip off. One easy flip of a switch and you'll stop the "leakage" from the nominally switched-off electronics.

I'm so naughty, I still have my old computer hooked up to my power strip. Wrists slapped.
