Overview of PC TrickleSaver - Energy Savings device

The TrickleStar™ PC TrickleSaver™ reduces the standby energy consumed by PC Peripheral equipment. The product connects to a PC via a standard USB connector and detects the power status of a PC via the USB port.
When a PC is powered the product will switch On all peripheral devices. Conversely when a PC is switched Off, the product will switch Off all peripheral devices. The product is easy to install and provides simple automation to reduce wasteful standby energy consumption.The product is suitable for residential and workplace PC applications.

The product can be connected directly to equipment or connected to a standard electrical powerstrip with a number of connected devices.


The PC TrickleSaver requires the PC to switched off completely.  The PC TrickleSaver will not work when a PC is placed into a sleep / hibernation state.  If you require peripheral devices to switch off in a sleep / hibernation state, a TV TrickleSaver should be used.

Certain manufacturers of products containing hard disk drives do not recommend hard switching off of their products.  We recommend reviewing the manufacturers documentation prior to use of a PC TrickleSaver with these products.
