Unfortunately, this isn’t true. Computers use about the same amount of power when they’re idling as when they are being used actively. That’s about 45 watts for your CPU and 80 watts for your CRT monitor. The CPU draws only slightly more energy when under heavy use, such as when you open an application. Energy management puts you computer and/or monitor into a low-power sleep when they are not being actively used. In this mode, your computer and monitor consume less than 15 watts!
