Does anyone have an educated guess as to the amount of electricity consumed by electronic music equipment that is on, but not being used?
Specifically, I’m talking about a big Roland KC-500 keyboard amp, an 88 key controller keyboard, and sound module. I play it sometimes, but leave it all on 24/7; my roommate, also a musician, comes along and shuts it all off to “save power.”
I maintain that while the equipment isn’t actually being played, the power draw is miniscule - I’m guessing, less than that of a nightlight. Is there much energy savings to be gained by not leaving the stuff on all the time?
