For those of you who like to put your appliances on stand by, here is a good tip. Avoid putting electrical appliances on stand by mode. They still eat up electricity. Unplug them after use. It is not enough to simply just switch off. Not only will you lessen your electric bill, you will help save the environment. good day! let us do our share! :)

I don't really have anything other than the computer that has a stand by mode. I keep my iron, toaster, coffee pot, curling iron etc... unplugged anyway unless they are in use. It lessens the chance of an electrical fire from one of the shorting out.

Good tip, even better is unplugging them as electricity runs through items that are plugged in, no matter whether they are on or not. Just so convenient to have things on stand-by,
