Guess What? Your Cheap Uncle Is Actually On To Something
Do you have a relative who insists on unplugging things when not in use, and you think that person is just a cheap kook? Well, guess what? They're right. Bill Machrone of PC Magazine shows how devices which claim to be off are actually drawing power. In his case, 10% of his yearly power bill was from things that were turned off. Your results may vary, but still, this really makes you think. Plugging devices into a power strip and switching that off instead might not be such a bad plan.
