To All Those Who do not TRUN OFF Their PC's, AC's Lights Before Leaving Office......
-Speech By Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam (Former President of India & Reknowned Indian Scientist)
Most of us in the IT field do one thing before leaving for the day from office Press CTRL + ALT + DEL and leave happily that means your pc is still on. One normal PC in sleep Mode (Hibernation) will consume 35 Watts/Hour. Based on this, let's do a small calculation.
For one week, 24 * 7 = 168 hours. Of this if we consider that we are working for 68 hours, than the pc is in Sleep mode for 100 hours a week. For one month, 4 * 100 = 400 hours. In a normal IT office, if we assume approximately 250 PCs are there 250 * 400 = 1,00,000 hours (Sleep Mode). So, the power wasted in an office in a month is 1,00,000 * 35 = 3500 KWH or units. If the charge per unit is Indian Rs. 6/-, then totally the wastage value is approximately Indian Rs.21,000/-.
Here the sad thing is not the money loss to the company but the power loss to the country. Hope no company is bothered about this procedure of keeping the system in Sleeping mode.
Apart from the loss to the country, we need to think of the efforts people are putting for producing the power in the mines, Thermal Stations, Hydro Electric Stations, etc. . If this is to continue, the cost of unit power will go up and, at one stage, we will not get power even if we were ready to pay any cost.
So, before leaving office, take some time to shut down the PC and do some favour to the Country and the organisation.
