Retweet for Earth Hour and Power Management Rules and Prizes

Join Climate Savers Computing in celebrating Earth Hour 2012 by turning on power management on your laptop and PC, and by participating in our Earth Hour Retweet for Power Management Contest! Using power management is one of the simplest ways to go green at home and at work, and depending on the age of your computer and energy costs in your area could save you up to $60 a year in energy costs for every computer using power management. Not sure how to turn on power management? Check our How to Turn Your Power Management On page to see how easy it is to save energy and do your part for the planet with just a few clicks of your mouse.
