As a power saving aside, I turn things off at the wall when not being used so there's no standby power drawn. One estimate in Australia is that 10% of all electricity is lost to standby devices.

I do this too.  I have a few of those old monitor power bases and plug my computers, chargers, and other similar devices into them.   When I'm not using them I turn off the appropriate switch so that there's zero parasitic power loss.
