I have a windows xp box at work that I am forced by my job to leave on continuously.

What are these "power settings that all PCs come with"

Is that something I can use right now by setting some preferences on box?

@Steve: Yes, you can find power saving settings in the same place you choose your screensaver. Some common settings are to shut off the monitor or hard drive after a certain amount of activity, or put the computer to sleep after a while.

Some laptops also have the generic levitra soft tabs option of a variable CPU speed, that seamlessly lowers itself if you're not doing anything processor-intensive. This may be in your laptop's BIOS settings, or in specialized software provided by your laptop manufacturer (usually comes pre-installed).

At a minimum, in the meantime of trying to get a system -wide power management strategy in place and/or if you are still forced to leave your cpu on,you can turn off your computer monitor when it's not in use. That's a reduction of approximately 50-75 kwH (depending on whether you're using a CRT or LCD).
