I know that my electronic devices pull juice from my wall even when they aren't on. But I don't actually do anything about it. It's too much trouble. Somehow, power strips always seem to exist in the darkest, dustiest most remote corners of the unvierse. I would love to just pop the switch and kill the vampire, but I'm pretty sure I'd need elastic arms to do it without disassembling my desk.
Besides, why can't the powerstrip just do it for you? Well, thank you for asking, it can. This extremely simple device connects to your PC via a USB port and turns off all appliances running on it when the computer turns off. Your speakers, monitors, printers, scanners, all turn off with your PC!
It's a great idea, and an extremely useful one at that. Now, if we could only get the same thing working for every other appliance in the house.
Buy it on Amazon
