Computers can use around £75 - £120 per year, per desktop computer so ensure your computer is never accidentally left switched on. Laptop computers are generally more energy efficient. This software should be used in conjunction with windows screen saver settings where the monitor should be set to auto power off, generally after 5-10 mins of inactivity. Use of this software could get your computer energy cost down to £5-£10 per year with huge CO2 reduction potential if there is a tenancy for it to be left on. This software has advantages over windows energy saving features as it can ensure that your computer is shut down automatically at the end of the day, at a time of your choosing. The software can also shut down your computer after a desired period of inactivity due to no user input, i.e. mouse no activity. Windows energy saving features such as turn off hard drives and system standby can often be unreliable and may not operate properly. This shut down software can also force shut down for non responsive programmes but generally will not allow shut down if unsaved documents are left open. Please check software licencing and agree to software producers terms however this software is generally fine for home use.
