As a way to meet the CO2 savers halfway, why not switch off the screen and set the screen saver to go to a blank screen instead of leaving it on all night or waggling a copy of the Windows logo all over the screen when you've left your desk for a few minutes? The PC doesn't need the screen on, even in standby mode, to do what it does with Prime95, of course.
Agree and agree. All my screens are set to power off after 3-5 minutes. Always.
