Stand down ... don't standby

About 2% of the world's electricity is consumed by devices on standby.

So, if we all turned those machines off (completely) and we then had to wait for them to reach full power ... how much productivity would we lose.

I don't know ... but I suspect we would save more than we would lose.

Can anybody suggest how or where we might get an answer that might convince people to change their behaviour?
