From the perspective of energy saving,

I switched off most of my equips, after setting

them to standby.


Old equips can consume > 2W of energy on standby.

New ones should be around 1-2W. Look for the

green label. ( My pioneer DVD is very proud of consuming

< 2W on standby, and they're sure to advertise that ).


Here's a rough calc.

if 5 devices on standy at 2W each for a month, it'll


5 * 2W * 24 * 30 = 7200 W Hour.

That's like one night of air-con? May be insignificant,

but a Watt save is a Watt save.


Just a small bit to save fossil fuel in a country without

fossil fuel.
