Good info-graphic and contrary to what some say, I unplug most devices and come morning the computer still functions, TV will turn on again, and nothing is harmed.

Millions if not billions of office computers are left on 24/7.From what I inderstand, sleep mode, multiplied by the millions just over a weekend, is a lot of energy.

For those businesses too small for IT analyses, how about some tips? Turn off vs sleep mode? Unplug chargers or keep plugged in?
