If you aren’t ready to shut down and unplug your computer, make sure it goes into sleep mode when not being used. This can save you up to $75 every year. You can find this option in your computer’s settings.

Make sure to disable any screen savers, too. They consume energy and prevent your computer and monitor from going into sleep mode.

Finally, turn off your monitor when you’re not using it. Contrary to popular belief, this can increase the lifespan of your device.
