Power consumption of a desktop computer
by Derek R - 8/21/06 6:45 AM
Can anyone advise me what the average hourly power consumption of a desktop computer would be if left running when not in use ( monitor is switched off). I appreciate this would vary from model to model and would only expect a ballpark figure, there is nothing to indicate the consumption in the manual or any labelling on the computer stating the wattage. I do tend to leave it running continuously and with ever increasing power costs I am interested what I could save if it was switched on only when in use.
