@brandon For example, sitting "idle" with me using it as a text editor, my desktop+monitor pull about 80 watts, while my laptop pulled about 11 watts.
That's, if I recall, about a difference of ~0.02g an hour, or ~0.16g over a day, or ~58g a year.
Which isn't much, but that's still 58g of wasted energy, just because I'm typing into one computer instead of another.
@brandon (And honestly, I use my computer much more than 8h a day.)
Now acknowledge that multiple people in the world are using computers that draw more power than they need to idle: think about how many workstations you handle for your job, you listed it on your profile recently, it was legit dozens.
