Fight Global Warming from Your Desktop

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
LocalCooling is a non-commercial project from the Uniblue Labs team.


More than 30 billion kilowatts of energy is wasted because many of us simply forget to shut down our computers when we’re not using them. With a more efficient power save mode the PC user community can make a real difference to Global Warming!


This fact conceived the idea for LocalCooling from the Uniblue Labs team. Even though PC power consumption is a small fraction of total energy use, it is still big enough to be a contributory factor. Local Cooling is our contribution to the fight against global warming. It’s a way for the PC user community to come together and make a difference today!


It is also a way to make people more aware of how much energy everyday appliances like computers actually consume and what it equals in environmental terms . Take your microwave oven for example. It uses up more power every day just to run that little clock 24/7 than it does to cook your dinner in it!

P.S. if i have done anything wrong with this post, I am sorry and feel free to remove this post.


EDIT1: Please notice that those guys are still fixing the bugs in it. Load of people have notice it's not done measure right but assure they're taking notice of these problems.

that's great, i do that as well but most of the time I'm in and out of the room so shutting down computer's not really a option for me. Been thinking of switching to AMD Geode system running Damn Small Linux.

I think I've seen this on BBC News. I'll give it a shot!

Though, I turn my computer off when I'm sleeping, but I do fold.

There're some options in the localcooling software that doesn't really need to shut your computer down, e.g. not using montior when folding/downloading.

Oh ya, mine is shut down when I don't use it, I even hardly put it in S3 state during the night.
