I work in a few schools where children have been taught to turn off the monitors to save energy. Unfortunately, this is all that they turn off. Every Monday morning I find 30+ computers running with powered down monitors.

What is best for the greater good?

Train them to shut down and leave the monitors in hibernation or, shut the monitors down with the risk of the hard drive and processor running for days on end?

    Your question needs some clarification (please edit): monitors don't go into hibernation, computers do. In your case, do they? If not, when they arrive on Monday they hit the power switch and turn the computer off ;-) – Jan Doggen Nov 7 at 14:28
