Smart tips for Low Carbon Living: computers
Reducing our impact on the environment doesn’t mean that you have to change your daily habits entirely. What we need is just a few tips and some adjustments.

For example, when you use your computer, please consider the following:

1. Do not use screen saver as it does not help save energy.
2. Set the system to standby/ sleep mode if it is idle for 30 minutes or more.
3. Turn the brightness of your screen lower as the brightest setting can double the power use of the dimmest setting.
4. Plug all your electronics onto one power strip and turn the strip off when you finish using your computer.
