Say goodnight to your computer for night-time savings.
At the end of a long day in front of your screen, it can be tempting just to flip the laptop lid down or wait until it goes on standby. But as you sleep, it'll act as an "energy vampire", especially if you leave the charging cable plugged in.
When you're finishing your work for the day, create a new ritual of saving everything you've done, closing all your applications and programs, and disconnecting all peripherals, like printers or external hard drives, connected to your computer. Then, shut down and turn off your laptop completely. For a computer, flip the switch on the power board or unplug it directly from the power socket.
