Save energy on computers by...
  • Turning your equipment on only when you need to use it.
  • Activating power management features so your computer and monitor will go into a low power "sleep" mode when not actively in use. Visit http://wings.buffalo.edu/ubgreen/content/programs/energyconservation/power_save.html for instructions. It only takes a few seconds.
  • Turning off your monitor when you leave your desk.
  • Activating power management features on your laser printer.
  • Buying low-wattage LCD flat screens and not CRT monitors.
  • Don't just "log off"; when you're done, shut down!
