Internet Wastes Power

Internet servers waste 90% of the AC (Alternating Current) power they suck from the grid. Intelligent power management should reduce power consumption when traffic is low. Since AC power is such a huge percentage of the cost for ISPs (Internet Service Providers), you would think they would refuse to buy equipment that did not cleverly manage power consumption, to hell with saving the environment.
