Makes sense, but I don’t have a laptop myself. But some things do is put it to sleep when not using it. I also have the TV/PS3 area hooked to a light switch so I turn it all off for the night or leaving for work. I just flip the switch off so there is no standby power being used while I’m away.
Great idea.. I always unplug my phone charger from the wall when it’s done charging.. My Droid even pops up a reminder to do it every time I unplug the phone.
