'Green Screens' Campaign:
Saving Energy while using a Screen Saver
Microsoft Windows XP
Step 1 of 2: Set the Screen Saver Delay:
- Using the right mouse button, click an empty location on your desktop
- Choose "Properties" from the popup menu
- Click the "Screen Saver" tab
- Use the "Wait" control to set an appropriate delay
Step 2 of 2: Set the Energy Saver Settings:
- Now, click the "Power" button
- Set "Turn Off Monitor" to an appropriate delay, longer than the screensaver delay chosen above!
- If you want to put your entire computer to sleep, choose a time using the control labelled "System Standby"
Note: when your computer is in standby mode, it uses very little power, and it is essentially turned off, i.e. it can't do anything.
- For extra savings, choose a time for the "Turn off hard disks" control (if your computer supports this option)
