I've been considering power usage of all my electrical gizmos......
In my house I have:
- 2 routers (one per broadband connection)
- 3 switches
- 1 x Server
- 1 x NAS
- 1 x Slingbox
- 1 x iMac
- 3 x Laptops
Now in the main only the routers, switches and NAS are on all the time. But I've got to thinking I should kill them overnight.
Now I have one router - a BT Home Hub that feeds my BT vision box and needs to be left on for overnight updates.
The rest can 'be off'!!!
What I need is a way to just switch them all on as needed!!
Gets you thinking though.....
