Eric Rochow of Real World Green gives us advice on making our computers more environmentally friendly. This video first explains that screensavers are not green. Screensavers require a computer to use its processor. Ideally, when you're not using your computer it should be in sleep mode and your monitor should be in sleep mode as well. This saves a lot of energy. Also, at the end of the day, turn off your computer and monitor. Don't let them run all night. An interesting fact from the Department of Energy: If every business in the United States used the sleep function on their monitors instead of screensavers, we'd save $600 million in energy! Be green, have fun with your computer, but say goodbye to that screensaver and you'll be saving energy.
