Does more active Components drain more Power?
The Simon posted a topic in OpenComputersHi! I have a elevator program that controls a elevator though buttons on a screen. I have a new screen on each new floor that gets re-bound to the gpu every time to save computer resources. These other screens are never turned off, they only sit there until the elevator is on the same floor as it. So my question is: Does it drain less power (rf/t) to turn off the screens when they are not in use? Or does it not matter whenever they are on or off. In real life if you turn off a computer screen you will save more power, but I'm not sure how it is in OpenComputers.

Can't access components
TheWildDefender posted a question in ProgrammingI was trying to make a computer program to control a BigReactor turbine (I'll use a microcontroller after I figure this out). I know that the computer port acts as a component, so first of all, to increase the convenience of access of the computer port, I wrote local turbine = component.proxy(component.get("5e7")) That was the very first line of the program; 5e7 is the shortened address of the computer port. There is a bunch more code at the bottom that does the actual regulating, but when I run the program, it spits out this error message: /home/turbine_control:1: attempt to index
