SWM Energiespartipps Computer

There are also various ways of reducing the power consumption of computers, monitors and printers:

Choose laptops: If you’re planning to buy a new computer and don’t necessarily need a high-performance PC, choose a laptop. Depending on the type, they only use around one fifth of the power.

Energy-saving function: Use your computer’s energy-saving function which ensures that only hardware components in use consume power. The computer switches all other components off. This function often has to be activated after purchase. Power management allows you to select, for example, the period of inactivity after which the monitor or hard drive is switched off and when the computer goes into stand-by mode.

Monitor: Screensavers do not reduce power consumption. You should therefore deactivate or completely switch off the monitor when taking long breaks. The brightness setting of most screens is too high. Reduce the brightness in the monitor settings to save electricity. Opt for flat screens if buying a new computer as they use much less power than tube monitors.

Shut down: Shut down the computer when it is not in use. Even though rebooting takes time, the power saving is worthwhile.

Printers, scanners, speakers: Only switch this auxiliary equipment on when you want to use it and do not forget to switch it off again afterwards. 

Multiple outlet strips: Connect all equipment to your workplace with a multiple outlet strip with an on/off switch. This allows you to disconnect all equipment from the power supply after work in one go.
