Do the friggin' maths- is it worth it?

One of the news site I visit has a sponsered banner from some (probably) taxpayer funded busy-body group-

On of the state-the-bloody-obvious 'handy hints' is about turning electrical gear off.

Aparently, turning my PC off each night will save me $100 per year.

It will also take me five minutes each day to reboot the damned thing. (I know- it's an old PC!)

That's 35 minutes a week- 30.33 hours a year.

30.33 hours of rebooting the PC returns me $100.

Not exactly a worthwhile return for my time...
