• According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the world population is expanding at an
  alarming rate. The world reached 1 billion people in 1800, 2 billion by 1922, and
  over 6 billion by 2000. It is estimated that the population will swell to over 9 billion
  by 2050. That means that if the world’s natural resources were evenly distributed,
  people in 2050 will only have 25% of the resources per capita
• The average American household spends about $1,400 each year on energy bills.
• On an average most large corporations spent about $100 million on energy in
  2006. At the current rate of usage, costs could easily double by 2010.
• Turning off your desktop computer and monitor for two additional hours per day
  could reduce your annual electric consumption by up to 1.5 percent.
• It’s a common misconception that screen savers reduce energy used by monitors.
  This is not true. Automatically switching to sleep mode or manually turning
  monitors off is always the better energy-saving strategy.

  environment. Conserve energy, reduce costs, and help
  protect the environment—all from a single familiar Web-
  based console. The toolkit enables administrators to
  designate monitor shut down (sleep) policies at select
  intervals. The result is a low-impact method of conserving
  energy and reducing costs. Shutdown policies for 10-, 15-,
