Why Can't We Turn Off The Lights At Night?

Why Can't We Turn Off The Lights At Night?

Having moved last week we realized just how bright it was in the bedroom and put up curtains throughout. Turning out the bedroom lights to turn in turned out not to really turn out the lights at all (say that ten times fast). Find out why couldn't we turn out the lights!

The culprit - sixteen, count 'em sixteen lights still on, emanating from various electronics and sources.

2 - computer power button and screen (at least until the power mode kicks in)
1 - computer power button
2 - mouse light and laser
2 - two laptops power button/light
2 - DVR time and power button
1 - TV power button
3 - air purifier options and power buttons
1 - alarm clock time
1 - Sony Dash screen
1 - Logitech Harmony remote charging screen

While a piece of black electrical tape over all but the screens and clocks might be a ghetto solution, we realize perhaps there is too much tech in our bedroom. Sixteen lights keeping the bedroom glowing at night might need some addressing to reduce the tech clutter in our lives, particularly in the bedroom. What do you think? When you turn off your lights to go to bed, how many lights are still on in your bedroom? Count 'em up and let us know!
