Re: Correct. It's a good and flexible system.

The card controlling electricity is a cost-saving measure for hotels, especially those in regions where the weather encourages use of an air-conditioner. As mentioned, some ports are still active for chargers or other low-voltage uses. Not sure why the OP is surprised and puzzled by this - it's been normal for a number of years. Last year, in a hotel in Pyongyang, I noticed the same system.

As I indicated in my earlier response - the main reason is not electricity wastage but more for hotel safety for hotel occupants - meaning only rooms with occupants have anything electrical on when unoccupied = safety for all!  There is no restriction on use of anything electrical when occupied.
