An energy-saving feature

Don’t confuse standby (or sleep) mode and the screen saver. The computer goes into power-saving standby after a certain amount of time of inactivity, but the computer is still available for immediate use. The screen saver feature darkens the screen or displays an image after a certain amount of time of inactivity. Contrary to popular belief, the screen saver doesn’t save energy or make your monitor last longer. To really save, you have to turn off the monitor, or use the computer’s standby mode.

With standby mode, you save time and money—and protect the environment

  • Eliminate reboot waiting times.
  • Shrink your desktop or laptop’s environmental footprint.
