How Tidy Are You Cables?

I've come to the realization that I'm not a man capable of keeping cables tidy: invariably, behind any stationary gadget in my home there's a rat's nest of cabling gathering dust.

Thing is, when I look at it, I want to sort it out—but 10 seconds in, I just shrug and think of something more interesting that I could be doing. Anything. And so I stop. Which makes me wonder: just how many people do tidy their cables? And what are your secrets for doing it efficiently?
