Good question, Mak. This is a interesting subject, the fact that our appliances still consume power even when they are switched off. Though the amount of energy saving is not that great for any one appliance, all of them do ad up. According to http://standby.lbl.gov, about 10% of our electricity is used by appliances that are not even on! There is also a section on that site that tells you how much energy is used by many different products while on, off, or on standby.
Hope this helps!
