Day 153: Set Screen Saver To A Black Screen
I set my computer’s screen saver to a black screen because it uses less energy than an animated screen saver.
If I was going to be away from the machine for a long period of time, I would have shut it down.
According to GreenYour.com
- It takes more energy to start your computer than leaving it on all night, computers require only a small surge of energy when they’re turned on.
- If your computer is going to be idle for more than two hours, you should shut it down.
- Shutting down your machine reduces its demand for energy, preventing the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
I have also adjusted the power settings on my computer as well.
