Powering Down

It's lights out on Saturday, when Earth Hour takes over the globe. I'd take part in it, but 1) my Outlook Calendar alerts rarely chime in on time and 2) I'm watching "Cops," not in front of my computer.

Not quite in the same spirit is International Shutdown Day, which occurs this year on May 2nd. The organizers of this movement say that the goal is to bring attention to computer addiction. For IT admins, is participating in any of these events worth the trouble? And what happens if you've got mission-critical apps that need to be online 24/7? What to do, then?
