FlyCatcher wants to know:

What I'm really asking, is it really that significant to turn off your electronics, appliances, etc. when it comes to saving energy/money? I'm wondering because of all the hype lately about products draining energy even when they're off, and the importance of unplugging all your things at home when you're leaving (which, honestly, is a little time consuming). I've seen things like this GreenPower strip, which is cool, but what else is out there, and how much of a difference does it make?

Have suggestions? Post them here.
