Are you still using power when things are connected to the outlet but aren't on?
I just wondered about that. Some of my friends say it’s not good to keep having your video game systems plugged in 24/7 even when they’re off. I wondered what was the reason behind this, as well as in general if you’re still using up power even when these things, whatever they may be, are off.
