It will surprise you to see all of the electronics that are plugged in during your hotel stay. Electronics that are plugged in still use energy - even when not in use. If it's not in use, why not unplug it? Have you ever considered unplugging unused electronics in hotels to conserve energy?

I more like the idea where the room key also works to turn on the electricity for the room. You know where your key is and when you leave and take the key with you the electricity is out. Altough I would like to have some electrical outletts stay on so that the laptop / cellphone can get charged while gone.

I have unplugged noisy mini bars in hotel rooms but would be wary of unplugging TVs etc as they often lose their memories and you need maintenance to use them later. I would wonder why when you check in to a room in the first case the TV is on with a welcome notice as well as a number of lights even in the day time.
