    Ask BSNL to give 8mbps speed. That way we can finish our downloads soon & also save electricity.

    as everybody knows monitors consume very much amount of electricity
    so basic is to switch off the monitor
    & if u dont need to use PC for some time than it better
    to make it standby or use hibernate comand for shutdown

    I have a Intel Dg965Wh Motherboard which supports Quick Resume Technology. So When I want to save electricity, i just turn on the quickresume mode by switching the power off switch in the cabinet and the soundand the monitor wil be turned off while cpu is on and doing its owrk with less electricity consumption..........

    Unfortunately, i have no broadband connection, only a stupid dial-up...........

    Best thing: Turn off your monitor and speakers and disconnect USB devices like pendrives, datacables, bluetooth dongles. Computer is fully functional

    Hibernate: Contents of RAM stored in HDD. Quick shutdown ;) and resume from where u left. Can turn off complete power supply as it is not needed. So, its like turning off computer.

    Standby: Earlier version of Hibernate. Needs low power supply to keep the computer on. Comp is not fully functional or functionality next to nothing.
