Go GreenHere I am again with a great tip for you, on Living Green, saving Mother Earth, energy and money.

As previously, I found this tip on ecomii website, and thought it would do us all lots of good to apply their suggestions to our every day, “computer busy” , life.

If you are like me, you work with a computer 8-10 hours at work, and then check your email at home, read the latest news, check out other websites, or work on your own blog post.

I am sure more households now have more than one computer under the same roof, so just think how helpful this suggestion really would be for all of us.

Todays tip: Don’t Snooze on Computer Efficiency

What?
Save energy – and reduce global warming – with your computer’s sleep mode.

How?
Be a responsible technophile. Use sleep mode, and not screensavers, whenever you’re away. The forgetful type? Adjust your power settings to have hibernation kick in sooner.

Why?

Computers are energy hogs, and screensavers are worse. In fact, screensavers use a lot more energy than your computer normally does – two times as much if they are graphically complex.

Did You Know?

A desktop computer left on for a full year would release 1,500 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Okay, But How Hard Is It?
As easy as letting your computer nap during lunch

    Sure, solar panels are a great invention, if you can afford them. We all need to be more conscientious about saving energy, so it lasts long enough for future generations.
