The Scene: I’m heading over to a ‘friends’ house for the evening.
My roomate Eddie says: “Bro you gonna turn off your computer?”
Brian says: “Friends in the past have always told me it takes more energy for a computer to reboot than it would to boot back up from hibernation.”…
And then I read this report
-”For example, if all the world’s 1 billion PC’s were powered down for just one night – it would save enough energy to light up New York City’s Empire State Building – inside and out – for more than 30 years”
30 YEARS!!!!!!! Perhaps we should all boot down a bit more from time to time.
