Individuals are expected to turn off lights when exiting rooms that are no longer occupied and to turn off office equipment (including monitors, task lights and personal computers, where possible) when leaving your workspace for more than 20 minutes and at the end of the day.
Turn yours off when not in use and be sure to power down your whole system when you are away, especially at night and on weekends.
Set your computer power management so that your computer monitor turns off and your CPU enters hibernate or standby mode when you leave your desk for extended periods of time.
Enable power management features on laser printers and copiers and power them down whenever possible, particularly on evenings and weekends.
