EcoChallenge Computer Efficiency Tips
General Rules for Computer Efficiency suggested by the US Department of Energy:
• Turn your monitor off if you won’t be using your computer for 20 minutes.
• Turn your computer off if you won’t be using it for more than two hours.
ô€‚¾ Your monitor can consume 2-3 times more electricity than your PC. Screen savers do NOT save energy. Instead, change the settings on your computer to turn the screen black when not in use. Or better yet, turn off your monitor.
ô€‚¾ Make sure to use the power management features on your PC. Learn how at http://www.aug.edu/energy/.
ô€‚¾ When your computer is in “sleep” mode it uses 70% less energy.
