Answer: This is a category of electronic devices that are often not shut down after use but are put on standby mode. They are kept plugged to the power panel. In such a mode they draw some power from the socket. If they are kept so throughout the day, they can suck loads of power. lf you are putting your device in standby mode, unplug it from the panel. Also switching off at the power point is effective enough; there is no need to disconnect all devices from the power point energy. Vampires can add 10 percent or more to your monthly utility bill.
