Computer use continues to rise, with an estimated 660 million computers currently in use (and expected to double by 2010). With such a huge power demand, the cost of power consumption could become more expensive than the initial equipment cost. Allowing (or even requiring) idle computers to sleep, would be a great step toward reducing unnecessary costs and energy waste.
