When devices, such as computers, are plugged into the Eco-Logical Smart Strip and go into sleep mode, the protector automatically cuts power to monitors, printers and speakers. All electronics draw power even when they are in sleep mode or turned off. A printer can use up to 30 watts in sleep mode, which can add up to about $27 a year in energy costs. Other computer components can draw more than 50 watts while standing idle. The energy being consumed by all of these idle electronics can be significant. The surge protector is available in either seven- or 10-outlet models and comes with two or three outlets for use with equipment that should not be turned off, such as fax machines, cordless phones or cable and satellite receivers.
