4. How many household members avoid leaving devices in standby mode (or an adult does it for them), or use no devices that have a standby mode?
The power consumed by devices left in standby mode can account for up to 10% of your electricity-related emissions.
On many televisions, DVD players, computers, printers, and similar devices, pressing the "Off" button switches to a standby mode rather than switching the device off completely. You can check the power consumption in standby and "sleep" modes from your product manuals, but the simplest way to ensure you are not wasting electricity is to switch devices off at the wall.
