This morning I was shown an unknown consumer in the Watt Analytics app. This device consumed about 30 watts for 1.5 minutes. I was wondering what device that could be! With a look at the dashboard of the Watt Analytics Web App, I could see that this event had occurred approximately once an hour throughout the night.
There are not many devices that have a "life of their own" in my apartment. I suspected that a PC or laptop in standby or energy-saving mode could have been the trigger for this.
And indeed! My iMac was in standby mode during the night and consumed electricity unnecessarily.
My lesson from this: From now on, I will always switch off my laptop completely in the evening - this saves electricity and money.
