HP: Shut Your PC Down For Mother Earth's Sake!
Namely, its to "download a new desktop widget that tracks the cumulative energy savings associated with participants turning off idle PCs when not in use." The widget, which is unsurprisingly named the Power To Change widget, can be downloaded by anyone across the world with a PC, and according to HP, this whole project is the "manifestation of HP’s long-held philosophy that industry leadership is about an ongoing contribution to society."
HP has estimated that if 100,000 PC users shut down their work computers at the end of each day (by the way, who doesn't do this already?), energy savings could reach as high as 2,680 kilowatt-hours and carbon emissions could drop by around 3,500 pounds per day. Needless to say, this request is dead simple to follow, and we can't recommend enough that you do indeed shut down your work PC each day if you don't already.
