I was just reading the following:  _ Bush Takes Aim at "Wall Warts" _,3396,s%253D201%2526a%253D6333,00.asp

And it talks about how power converts use up to 4% of a homes electrical
power usage...

Now I don't know about you guys but a drop of 4% in my electrical bill would
be about $10 a month....

But the question is... how does one create a power on demand transformer?

In my home office alone I currently have close to 15 of these
transformers... and they all seem to output different voltages, amps, some
are AC -> DC, while others are AC -> AC.

While a few of these could be placed on one of the under monitor style power
strips that have on/off switches for each device... but many of them power
device that may be called on 24 hours a day for the device to work (network
hubs, DSL Modem, UHF Converts, ect.)

So what's a person to do??
