Steve — You are so right, about how sometimes we don’t realized the money we are wasting by leaving our PCs, printers, and other pieces of technology on 24/7. Until I started working for HP, I did not realize how much energy and dollars I was wasting by leaving everything on all the time. At my last job, I had such a fossil of a PC that I left it on 24/7 so that I would not have to wait 30 minutes for a boot up and shut down. I participated in my first “Power IT Down Day” in 2008 and have been powering my IT down every day since then. It all begins with education and spreading the word.
