The same way you try to save water or when you take a bath you waste like 100 L of water? I work in the energy efficiency field and this is one of my concerns. I feel sorry if it isn't one of yours, it should be of all.
At the end it is your money you waste on electricity but do you know how it was produced? Do you know how much CO2 was emitted? I'm thinking of the world for the next generation...
Finally, I think you should take a visit on the Department of Energy website of your country, USA.
