Posted Thu Feb 5 2009: from University of Liverpool, via EurekAlert:
Software could save organizations $19,000 each month
Software designed by the University of Liverpool which automatically shuts down computer systems after usage, is saving large organisations up to 13,000 in electricity costs each month.... Using the University of Liverpool as a test model the team discovered that 1,600 library-based PC's alone were using 20,000 kW each week unnecessarily equating to approximately 2,400 in current electricity prices. PowerDown has so far recovered 24 million hours of PC inactivity within the University.
