IF ALL EMPLOYEES TURNED OFF THEIR MONITORS AT END OF SHIFT - THIS COULD SAVE A LARGE SUM OF MONEY.

IN ADDITION - IF POWER DISTRUBITION / SURGE PROTECTORS WITH INDIVIDUAL CIRCUIT SWITCHES WERE USED - WE COULD TURN OFF THE POWER SUPPLIES FOR THE MONITOR AND ANY OTHER DEVICE THAT HAS A POWER SUPPLY - LIKE A CALCULATOR OR ELECTRIC STAPLER. THIS WOULD ALSO ALLW THE USER TO LEAVE THE CPU (COMPUTER) RUNNING FOR NIGHTLY UPDATES. THIS IN ITSELF COULD SAVE TREMENDOUS AMMOUNTS OF MONEY - SINCE TRANSFORMERS STILL DRAW POWER EVEN WHEN THE DEVICE ITSELF IS OFF.
