    turn off the monitor when you're not using it (that's about the only one i can suggest, my computer is always doing 'something' when it's on)

    You can look into the power management setting to turn off things automatically when you&#39;re not using them.

    I still think it&#39;s pretty pointless to try. The difference will be so little (even for TO.) that it&#39;s not worth the inconvenience.

    go to the power option in your pc and set it to turn off the monitor after 20mins of non use
