Bye Bye Standby reduces electricity bills - Provides 3 socket adaptors and a remote so you can turn off major appliances/electrical goods from your bed and turn them back on in the morning.

At Amazon it is £23.05 but i used student discount to get 5% off and signed up for DVD rental so, in the end, it was only £11.90!

Yeah, that's what i thought. They did a deal, but it fell through because they couldn't patent the technology behind it.

This is not the same as the one on Dragon's Den (where they claimed to have a patent on there being a battery), but something similar.

Advantages are that you do not need a battery which will probably fail over the years - I don't know why a battery is required as you are obviously connected to the socket, and as long as you take a very little power it should be OK.

Also, Bye Bye Standby use RF, so you can keep the device out-of-sight and still switch off, and may even work from a close-by room. Also, you can have groups, so one press can switch off a number of devices.

Finally, Domia, the makers of Bye Bye Standby are also doing systems to allow control of your house via a Media Center PC and other ways.

Why is this so cold??? There are no negative comments, apart from the one about it being a Marketplace seller (which proved to be incorrect), so I don't understand the iciness of the vote :?

Fixed it so it's a direct link.

How do you get the 5% student discount?

Complete waste of time and money.

If global warming was real then the government would introduce legislation to turn the national grid off after 11pm and fuel would be £10 a litre.

I leave me TV on all night just to prove the sandle wearers wrong.

No streetlights at night, so a freepass for burglars, muggers etc, and an increase in road accidents; expensive fuel so that the poor would be the first to suffer.

Good thinking, let me know when you have the brain implant.:whistling:

You have to have a UCAS card to get the 5% student discount:)

what at amazon? i have a ucas card it doesnt say you can get discount at amazon on it :?

You can get the 5% student discount at Amazon when you have an NUS extra card. This costs about a tenner but you get a free ISIC card (an internationally accepted student card). http://www.nusextra.co.uk/ is the website. Though the card gets delivered to your uni so if like me you arent going there till beginning of october then there's no way of getting it which is annoying as you need the card number and can't get hold of this without going and collecting it.

Cant see the point. Is it as it looks? ie another remote control? It would be quicker just to get up and turn the TV off, then get up and sort through 20 different remotes to find the one you need!!!

And to get it for the reduced price - you have to sign up for a DVD rental deal - burning more electricity on the player and TV! Hmmm doesnt sound very eco friendly!!!


About the remote - I tried using it with my Logitech Harminony 785 universal remote and it is not compatible, hence now selling on eBay!

The fact you don't need to get up is good for the elderly or disabled as well as the lazy!

I bought an X10 lamp dimmer which should do the same job but my remote is being dodgy and won't update properly so another thing to send back! i.e. the remote!

And if you sign up for the DVD rental you have to pay at least one payment of £3.99 and then you can cancel, so it's not the full £10 off.

Black people!!! The DVD rental will be useful - maybe i wont get full £10 off but i will use the DVDs so not too bad. Also the product is very good - My mum has had one for a while and can see a real difference in her bills.
Personally i do visit the DVD shop regularly enough for this to be a 'real' discount

Yeah, that would go down well! I think that the fairly sudden massive focus on energy saving, the second Gulf War, the Russians trying to claim North Pole reserves, and big companies like Virgin investing massive amounts in researching alternatives to oil probably means that we are coming to a head with oil supplies, but of course nobody could just announce that- the world would go crazy, even a modest increase in oil prices can potentially destroy the economy if people start hoarding fuel and cut their expenditure when worried.

Course, it could all be a coincidence... but imagine if plastic came into a shortage... 90% of the things we buy via hotukdeals are made of plastic- what would we do???

The one posted is not the one from Dragon's Den.
This link does appear to be the one from the Den though... http://www.standby-saver.co.uk/standby_saver_benefits.htm
