369949 story Monitor Draws Zero Power In Standby 405 Posted by CowboyNeal on Thursday November 08, 2007 @09:42PM from the green-screens dept. fifthace writes "A new range of Fujitsu Siemens monitors don't draw power during standby. The technology uses capacitors and relays to avoid drawing power when no video signal is present. With political parties all over Europe calling for a ban on standby, this small development could end up as one of the most significant advances in recent times. The British Government estimates eight percent of all domestic electricity is consumed by devices in standby."
