Quoting DallasCowboys81: Ours is always up. We have a dd petrified of the dark and turns her light on at night when she thinks we are asleep. Even tho she has a nightlight in every outlet in her room. So if it did go up well we wouldn't notice. Lol bad thing is she is 17. Lol

Haha. Thank You for this!  I have been having a pretty crappy day, and then I read this.  My son does the same thing, and it drives me nuts! He is only two, and I tried putting night lights in his room, or the push led lights to light the room, so he wouldnt turn the light on all night.  He would just unplug the night lights, or stand on things until he got the led lights off the wall, SIGH.  So when you said she was 17, I pictured him with the same little face, on an adult body holding his car's blanket crying about the dark :)

$687.00 for one month. Although I had baseboard heaters that stayed on when the thermostat was turned off. Needless to say We disconnected the power to those.

Not our electric, but our heating did since we went through a crap load of oil over the past few weeks.
