Reminder to power off computers

I suggest that you consider giving employees a reminder to power off computer before leaving the office for the day. This could be done in the form of a sticker or sign that has the shape of a STOP sign. While most departments and agencies have policies requiring employees to power down their computers when not in use, not all are compliant with these policies. These stickers/signs could be placed in highly visible places (e.g. computer monitor, login screens, office exits, etc.) to serve as a reminder to take this action. This would save a significant amount of electricity if implemented government wide. Also, there is a potential cost benefit to the government of reduced contract costs if we required our contractors to implement these stickers/signs in their facilities as well.
