Most of us
are aware of energy vampires,
those always plugged in electronics that continuously use power even in standby mode. The only way around this is to power off all your electronics and unplug any devices using wall warts. For those people that can't be bothered to do this, Fujitsu-Siemens may have an answer.
The new Fujitsu Siemens monitors will make use of capacitors to store energy so that no power is drawn when no video signal is detected. With this stored energy, the monitor can be awakened from sleep immediately without having to constantly draw current.
