With this downturn in full swing, companies are looking to save some cash. But instead of firing staff and sitting tight-fisted on the bank balance, there’s US$2.8 billion a year to be saved.

And it won’t just save money either, unused PCs emitted about 20 million tons of carbon dioxide (about 4 million cars worth) last year. So if you value your job, and the planet, shut it down.
