Aren’t power strips the same as leaving an appliance plugged in?

    Yes, but the thing about a power strip is that a lot of them have a switch to kill the power to all appliances without having to unplug anything. If you leave the switch on, though, then yes, the strips will still be using standby power. There are also strips that have energy-saving features that shut off power whenever plugged in appliances go into standby mode, though you’ll want to look carefully at the appliance and the power strip to make sure they work together.
