LOL Glenn your nuts
No router even the ones with an on/off switch are designed to be turned off thats the nature of the beast.
When they get hot and cold all the time they tend to start bitching at you and when they do you will not like it since they then tend to failRay
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

It is not a requirement that your router is left switched on. If you wish to turn yours off when not in use, then please feel free to do so. Not all routers are used only 10% of the time, in fact many are used 100% of the time.
My biggest concern is that they don't appear to be biodegradable, so what is going to become of them all if SKY change to, say, Linksys?Service recovery 02392 899292
You got 3 right!

just to add a little twist
no matter what we do in the uk to help the enviroment etc it will not make the slightest diffrence mainly because of 2 things
1 america and china are eating up world resources [literally in usa case ]
in britain it takes 4 months b4 we eat into world reserves per year ie it would take 3 earths to supply us with our usage per year [pretty bad i know ]however usa would need 8 earths to keep up with their usage and china is the same
we're all going to hell in a hand cart no matter if we all shut down our pc etc and went back to the dark ages as the earth can and will regenerate itself [very probably without humans [no great loss] and in 65 million years your bones etc will provide fuel for the next generation of planet killers [yup thats us folks]
2 if everyone turns off their router ,pc ,telly etc when not in use then were will all the power go [believe it or not when u turn on your pc another power station doesnt come on line its already overproviding for use and so the damage is or has been already been done ]
if you want to help plant a tree or 2, walk to work ,dont ever fly on holiday or use a car [do more harm to enviroment than any router ever could ] or do as i do and go and get drunk at least once a week and sit back enjoy the ride

trees are nice, and they don't have plugs or on off switches
