Power down computers when leaving work

Put systems in place that perform data/file backups of desktop machines during the work day or when the machine is being powered down. Then encourage workers to turn off those machines when they leave for the day. This would be a tremendous cost saving, plus reduce the burden that we place on the power grid. (When I stopped leaving my home machine on 24/7, our electric bill went down $40/month.)
