Standby power is the bane of all electricity consumption. Essentially if there is a light coming out of a device, it is consuming power. It is such an important problem that the British Government is considering banning standby power altogether. As part of their green initiatives, Fujitsu Siemens has come up with a new type of monitor that uses zero standby power. Is this the solution?
Having said that, and while we applaud the measure, wouldn’t it just be easier for everyone to turn their power off when they stop using them?
