It's a well-known fact... we geeks love info-graphics. Here's a great one demonstrating the amount of energy (and money) being sucked away into the void by vampire drain: that annoying tendency electronics have to use energy even when supposedly "off." At 11 cents per kilowatt/hour, you could save over $200 a year by unplugging your entertainment center when you're not using it! In America, it's estimated that over $3 billion a year vanishes in a puff of smoke due to vampires who sneak into your house at night to watch TV.
