Erm now youre scaring me Seta-san, my CPU is overclocked!!!

Hmm..... I wonder why they dont try and harness the power of GPUs in these programs?, The GPUs in new gfx cards are Loads faster than cpus in some cases, it would also double the amount of work they get done.

I fail to see the point...:p I don't use a screensaver, I turn my monitor off and put the computer into hibernation when I'm not home. Saves energy.

Apparently here in Australia homes increase their electricity bill by upto 15% because they leave their PC on standby/hibernation.

Umm.. well that's obviously not right then. Because when hibernating, everything pretty much turns off. It's almost the same as turning the power off completely. Where did you hear that anyways?

I suppose it isn't as good as turning it off completely. But it certainly does use less energy than leaving it on.

Every computer I've had, it's always been turned off at night and on in the morning. All of those computers still work great to this day.

But anyways, this is kind of off topic... So let's just leave it. There's a thread about this issue already. That is about the turning on and off of computers.

Hibernating computers save the contents of memory to disk, then power down. They are not on, therefore they are using no power.

this was true a long time ago. it's not anymore. With the amount of heat these things put out it's only worth leaving these things on during the winter.

It does + you save time (and possible the mobo's life) by not turning it on and off continuously...
