Computers Need Sleep Too!


As a part of UFV's energy conservation efforts, Computers Need Sleep Too was launched in late 2014, particularly to target staff and faculty. 

The poster and media announcements were put out a week before the interesting part of the campaign. In the late evening, when most staff and faculty had left, members of the greenteam checked to see if computers were shut off. If they were, the owner was rewarded with a sweet treat. 

We had surprisingly positive results! 

  • Building A had 16% of the computers left on 
  • B Building had only 9.5% left on 
  • C building had 17.6% of the computers on

Since campus has so many computers, it was difficult to get even those ones done. We hope to continue next fall with other parts of campus.
