Abstract: The term "Green Computing" was probably coined shortly after the ?Energy Star'1 program began way back in 1992. One of the first results of green computing was the "Sleep mode" function of computer monitors. As the concept developed, green computing began to encompass thin client solutions, energy cost, accounting, virtualization practices, e-Waste etc.
Keywords: Green Computing, Energy Star, Sleep Mode, Virtualization, energy efficiency, recyclability
