So these rates actually work ? ;) I see why electricity companies make electricity cheaper at night, but I've always wondered if it was an effective way to make people turn power-savvy devices on at night.

Anyway, if I may add my own computer-unrelated advice... During the winter, make sure that heaters only heat when you are at home, and heat up less during the night. One actually sleeps better if the house is at 15-17°C, although you get cold mornings as a counterpart.
