Computing Issues that Affect Us All

Many people leave their computers running continuously, whether in use or not. As computers are now small, cheap and powerful they are found in almost all areas of modern life.  This consumes power unnecessarily. To solve this problem, you can use a “green PC,” which automatically powers down the monitor and hard drive after a period of non-use.Another way to conserve energy is to use hardware that conforms to the EPA’s “Energy Star” program, which sets standards for power consumption.
