Some appliances consume quite a bit of power even when they are switched off. In the following table “soft off” means that it is turned off using the remote control or soft button. “switch off” means it is turned off using the (apparent) on/off switch.
|Appliance||On||Soft off||Switch off|
|Samsung 22 inch TV||45||9|
The so-called power switch is not always what it seems – for instance the Sharp TV switch just stops the TV being turned on using the remote, but power consumption is still 24W even in the off position.
