Use your laptop
without a monitor
to help save energy.
Conserve energy by opting to use your laptop rather than a monitor.
According to energy.gov.au, laptops are designed to use less energy compared to desktop computers. Additionally, laptops can run for longer periods without requiring a charge when disconnected from monitors. To help further save on energy consumption, put your laptop on power-saving mode and turn the brightness down.
If you are required to use a monitor, try opting for an energy-efficient monitor with a high energy star rating and set up sleep mode to reduce power consumption if you regularly leave your desk.
