Moreover, power consumption can be cut with such features as the Power Supply Coordination Service Concept(7), which enables zero power to be consumed in standby mode when with main switch or display switch has been accidentally left on. Another way to save power is offered by the all-in-one PC with a built-in LCD screen that enables just the power for the display to be turned off.
