My computer(s) is(are) OFF.

Do you have any idea how much power is being wasted by leaving it on 22 hours a day when you are only using it for 2?

There are sites on the web that attempt to quantify it, and by any of their measures it's staggering. Do your wallet and the world we live in a favor and turn off (or sleep atl east) your machines when they are not actively being used.

(And that includes protein folding, searching for aliens or trying to break encryption at levels that are far below what is common and legal to use these days, it is actually a TREMENDOUS waste of power)
