How Do You Save Energy In Your Office?

The all knowing folks at Lifehacker published a great 10 Computing Energy Savers list last week, which got me thinking about the bazillions of ways I must be wasting energy.

Their list is as follows: 10. Upgrade your gear 9. Dim your screen 8. Consolidate and virtualize computers 7. Turn off peripherals 6. Kill unnecessary processes 5. Get a smart power switch 4. Enable energy saver settings 3. Unplug energy vampires 2. Spin down your hard drive and 1. Shut down.

I highly suggest checking out their list for ideas on ways to cut back, but I assume most of you have already considered your energy usage and have worked out your own system.

I have discovered that I am the only person in my office to turn off lights when I leave a room. But hey, at least I'm doing my part!

i keep my home computer and all its acoutrements shut down and unplugged just about every week day, because i'm on a computer all day at work. i also shut my work computer down every day at the end of the day, but i think i might be the only one in my office who does. :-/

I feel like offices are huge wasters of resources, so I'll be recycling a few of the millions of copies we make before I start inconveniencing myself personally.
