No, I would not be able to stand that. My bedroom is free of all electrical equipment and everything all over the house is turned off at the power point when I go to bed. That might be because electricity is so expensive here but also, I just don't like going to bed knowing there are things on. I am a bit OCD there, I will check and double check and sometimes triple check all power points are off before going to bed or going out.

Does the fridge and freezer get a free pass or do you also turn them off?

Now there's a band who've been making the same album their whole careers.

How would anyone know? Are you suggesting that there are people out there who have listened to more than one of their albums?

Thanks evereybody for checking this topic out. 🤝

What it boils down to is:

Manufacturers, please stop putting leds on everything you produce.

If a led is necessary make it extremely small and faint. There's no need to see it 50 foot away.

No kidding!  It's actually hard to find new computer gear that's not COVERED in RGB lighting (some of which has no "off" switch)!

Maybe the new Star Wars trailer can use this.   "Come to the Darkness where there is no LED's"  Of course you will be blared with Light Sabres :D

Well, I guess it takes all kinds, because I actually like all of those little beacons of technology.

They remind me of how I'm not living in the seventies anymore. It's cool! Give me the blue jewels over the useless flashing "12:00" on the Betamax.

I often wonder why devices with digital clocks don't include a capacitor to keep the timer going when the power is out.

When the power blinks at home I have to reset the microwave, stove, answering machine and a few other displays.

That just reminded me of my grandad who never ceased to be amazed how the clock in his car always knew what time it was when he started it up again. When it automatically adjusted for winter/summer time that would just blow his mind........
