17" Monitor settings - Electricity Usage?

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Michael P Gabriel, Jun 7, 2004.

  1. Hi...

    I'm trying to save electricity with my 17" Optiquest Q75, (Viewsonic)
    monitor. I don't use screen savers, I'd rather turn the monitor off
    for 5 to 10 minutes than use a screen saver. Or just lower the
    brightness while I'm away from the unit.

    What effects electricity usage the most? Color selection, brightness,
    contrast settings?. And how can I save the mnost, if at all possible.

    Or would the savings over a month or so be minimal???

    Would appreciate some ideas.
    Thanks very much
