When the cost of energy went sky high, I phoned Powergen, asking what it cost to run a PC.

I was quoted 7P TO 11P an hour.

So at the lowest cost, if their quote was correct,

equals 7p* 24* 90 days a quarter =£151.20

So 2 pc's were costing £302.40 a quarter.

We only turn them on now when we use them,
and my electric bill as dropped like a stone.

Does this cost include when your computer is set in energy saving mode?

Am I having a blonde moment? I cannot make that work out, are you saying that is if you leave your computer on 24 hours a day, I worked it out using it 4 hours a day and it comes to little over a £100 per year!

Bet you just logged off but could,nt bear the thought of missing something spicy.
Must admit to being supprised at how much it costs to run a puter though. Never leave anything on standby. Use it then knock it straight off.
