PC Energy Savings Guideline :: ASK US, University of Hawaii
Power saving settings can be adjusted to meet your needs. A desktop computer when shut down uses 3-5 watts; when it is idle, it uses an average of 89 watts. A laptop computer when shut down uses 3 watts; when it is idle, it uses 15-25 watts.*. By putting your computer to sleep when it's inactive, considerable energy savings can be realized.
2012/3/6For maximum energy saving these PLLs are best powered down when the blocks they drive are expected to be inactive. PLLs call for a constant current to maintain a lock. When starting up, it therefore takes time before the PLL is ready to provide a stable clock signal.
How We Use Energy. We divide our energy use among four economic sectors: residential, commercial, transportation, and industrial. Heating and cooling our homes, lighting office buildings, driving cars and moving freight, and manufacturing the products we rely on in our daily lives are all functions that require energy.
Through energy projects and operational improvements, our professional staff takes a team-oriented approach to saving energy. Regional Energy Managers are strategically located to cover the 150+ general fund buildings that represent 15.9 million square feet of research laboratories, classrooms, offices, recreational facilities, and performance spaces.
