8 HOW TO CONSERVE POWER ON PC
We have all seen it in our computers, but how many of us actually set a power save option on our PCs. The power options in the Control Panel, lets you decide when the PC should go to sleep, or hibernate, if it is in a idle state. The ideal setting is to initiate sleep of the monitor after 20 minutes. In case you want to turn off the hard disk too, set that to beyond 90 minutes as there could be processes running in the background. We often leave the computer on overnight while running a virus scan or downloading large files. In such cases, select the option that shuts down the computer when these processes are over. Also, make sure speakers are turned off when not in use.
