Home Sleep Timer
Have any family members who fall asleep while watching TV? Forgot to power down that power-hungry quad-core desktop computer in the study? Did someone forget to turn off the lights in the basement? If so, write a script that turns off lights, appliances, and computers at a time when everyone should be sleeping. If the computer supports Wake-On-LAN (WOL), send it a shutdown packet from your script. Turn off lights via X10 heyu commands. Turn off TVs and stereos via the entertainment system remote. Turn off anything else plugged into a PowerSwitch Tail. Pocket some money, reduce your carbon footprint, and save the planet while you sleep.
