We have setup some power saving scripts to shut down our desktops and also for our monitors (turning screens off after 20mins).  Question is does the monitor consume more or less power when in standby mode (PC off and screen left on or power saving mode is enabled on the screen) than when the the screen is physically turned off?

thanks

Less power when off.  Our dell 17" screens drop to about 4 watts when they turn themselves off, but 0 when turned off.  4w is pretty tiny though.

Get a little wattage meter from Maplins to test stuff.

Thanks for closing it - was there more that you wanted to know?  Thought I'd covered it all and more... cheers, Danny
