IT Sustainability
If you work on your computer all day, put your computer to "sleep" when you are not going to use it for awhile. "Sleep" mode uses as little as 15 watts of energy -- a 90 percent energy savings compared to energy used while the computer is fully on.

IT Tip
If you are visiting a website or reading an e-mail that is difficult to read due to the color of the page or the size of the font, change the font and color. Find out how.>>
