that monitors should be turned off if they will unused for more than 15
mins. computers, it said, should be turned off if they will be unused
for more than 3 hours...

Keep this information coming and lets hope that everyone else does the 
same thing!  Makes it worth subcribing  (unlike the vanity,pig 
farmers, ect. stuff)!

That's OK. But I feel that rule No.3 must really be No.1!!!

Well being European, I don't think I may add anymore...
