How Much Is Your Plasma TV Standby Mode Costing You?
It's no secret that plasma TV's are huge energy consumers when they're actually turned on, but how much do you think they consume when in standby mode?

That amount of money equates to 1452.4 kilowatt hours, roughly 5-6 times as much money as the second and third worst offenders-game consoles and computers-will cost you.
