How do we turn off the speakers?

I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!

ok, so i looked at the energy consumption of the speakers, it is very low, on my ammeter the dial didnt move, so it is less than a quarter of an amp.


EDIT: I now think this is untrue...
'good news though, i switched it on and off and there was no problem with big pops or anything (this turns out to be a problem if the desk, compressor or equaliser are switched off), so if people really want to turn them off they can - however i think it will lead to confusion, damage and problems.. so i would really prefer it if people didnt..we'll talk about it i guess....'

typical costs of electricty:

speakers <60watts (on but not used), so costs less than £0.005 an hour.
kettle 1800 watts, one boil costs about £0.015
microwave costs £0.10 per hour
the grill probably costs £0.20 an hour.

at night with most things off the kitchen is still drawing quite a lot of power, i forget how much, but the main sources of this would be the immersion heater, the tea hot water heater, the fridges, the soup urns (i presume these arent left on) and the coffee machine (now swithced off?).

we should definetly switch off all these things off at night, apart from the fridges.

most important is that the immersion heater and tea water heater should be switched off every night (timers could be easily installed for these things), this is likely to save in the region of £500.

electricity costs about £0.10 per kwh (ie. 1000 watts being used for one hour costs £0.10)

Nice.

In theory, the tea-boiler-thing is turned off every night. I don't know what an immersion heater is? The soup urns are also turned off. A big one that people forget (all the time!!!) is the stereo - the IMac almost never gets turned off, nor does the volume/tuner/thingies.

How much do you reckon those new lights you bought cost to run? (Not the stage lights, but the ones that we're using in the day now.)
