Tip 1: Goodnight standby mode!
They say never put all your eggs in one basket — and that applies at work, too. However, connecting various work devices, such as a desktop computer, monitor or laser printer to just one power strip, well — that makes good sense. By running your electronic equipment via a central power strip, you save energy. Not while the devices are running, of course. But after the work is done: by switching off the power strip, you prevent your appliances from eating up power in standby mode overnight, for instance. With inkjet printers, it’s often not advisable to disconnect them from the mains over and over again, as they start up a cleaning run when they’re switched on again, which uses up a lot of ink. And an additional tip: If you’re working on a laptop and take a break: simply close it shut. It’ll then go into sleep mode.
