Three easy steps to conserving energy.
Use of "Sleep Mode"
During the work day, if a computer is inactive for a set period of time you can have your computer use less energy by putting it to SLEEP.
Screen Savers DO NOT save energy, in fact they no longer save anything. They were originally designed to protect older monochrome CRT monitors from phosphor burn-in if the same image was displayed for a long time. Screen savers are now used for entertainment or decoration. To better conserve energy, turn off your screen saver and set the monitor to automatically power off as described above.
When to Turn Off or Shut Down your computer and monitors
If you will be away from your computer for 5 or more hours it is best to turn off your computer. Contrary to popular belief, computer life is not shortened. Also, the energy savings is greater when equipment is turned off then when it is left in "sleep mode".
We do not recommend the use of Standby or Hibernation.
While these functions provide increased energy conservation, these features do not work on all computers. Use of these features may result in loss of data or system "freeze-up". However, if you are currently using these features successfully, please continue to do so.
Please feel free to contact the Help Desk (ext. 0479 or ) if additional instruction or assistance is needed.
