Automatic Standby Switch
I stumbled upon this
little gadget...and thought I'd share it with you all. It seems like something that a lot of you could make pretty easily. The concept is simple, it plugs into the wall, and your device plugs into it. As soon as it detects your appliance/device is in standby mode, it cuts the power. Just a simple way to save the power that your junk sucks in when you're not using it. As NachoMahma pointed out to me, one big improvement would be automatic reset.
Anyways, if someone wants to give it a shot, i'd love to see the instructable on it.
