NATO - No Action, Talk Only

From the Blah, Blah, Blah department. A recent survey of 200 managers in the UK reported that about two-thirds thought that saving energy was important, but only 20 percent had performed an energy audit. Apparently 'awareness' is the problem:

Zoe McMahon of HP admitted that IT suppliers had to do more to raise customer awareness about the cost effectiveness of energy-efficient systems. "Having the [energy efficient] technology is one thing, but a lot of people don’t think it exists," she said. "There is a lot of education that needs to be done, particularly around the simple steps you can take like activating power management capabilities on PCs."

Okay, so our top IT professionals aren't aware of power management capabilities on PCs. Check, please!
