The Trickle Star PC TrickleSaver is a device that aims to minimize standby power waste by automatically powering off computer peripherals when your computer is turned off.

In this way, the Trickle Star PC TrickleSaver acts as a go-between; it plugs into both your computer and a power strip, intuitively cutting the power to the strip when your PC is shut down. Since most people don't use their printer or sync their mobile devices and MP3 players when their computer is turned off, the Trickle Star PC TrickleSaver minimizes the amount of energy wasted by peripherals that are left on unnecessarily.
