    Depends which ones:

    Computers inside the house = Yes

    Computers in the workshop = Depends on what they are doing, if doing a long scan - No Other wise yes, but always turn off the monitors if they are left running.

    Servers x 2 = No they run 24/7 - 1 is headless, other Monitor off unless needed.

    Add in the router and switches and the place looks like a Christmas tree at night

    I'll say! What with all the routers and Woosh modem and gateway and printers and mobiles/MP3 players being charged and server running, a plane could land thinking it was a runway

    A poll was a bit of an overkill to me, but I leave mine on. If Im going away for a couple of days i turn it off.
