Switch off the computer while not in use

If you support Earth Hour,then the next step to continue the noble purpose, is to switch off the computer while not in use or overnight.

The 2009 PC Energy Report revealed that all the power wasted while computers are sitting idle on overnight mode added up to US Dollars $2.8 Billion wasted on excess energy cost each year in USA alone; it is 300 million sterling pounds for UK, and 918 Million Euro for Germany.... and there are many countries,like Japan, India, China ..... imagine the excess energy cost globally?

It was reported by the CEO of IE Mr Sumir Karayi, if all the world's 1 billion PC were powered down for just one night, it would save enough energy to light up New York City's Empire State Building for more than 30 years... it is an amazing figure(visit You can download the report. IE is the market leader in PC Power management software.

The PC will function better, if we start the PC regularly; and nightly shutdown will avoid the sudden reboot during the day while you are in most productive hours.

It is time we support another good act, switch off the computer for 1 hour.

Computer Hour, shut down computer for one hour. Why not?
