Go green, save green: turn off that computer

December 13, 2010 at 7:31 am

 

As we head into what for many will be an extended break, please remember to turn off completely your computer, monitor, and peripherals (e.g. printers, game systems) in your office or residence hall room before you leave campus.

Electronics consume electricity even while in standby and are less vulnerable to surges when turned completely off. Turning your equipment off while away on break reduces our carbon footprint and saves the college some cash!

Please do, however, leave classroom and lab computers on; they receive critical updates on a managed cycle and ISR will handle any efforts to shut them down.
