Here's one of those super-simple ideas that makes you wonder why no one thought of it before. The ID Pilot Wire Identification Labels stick onto plugs sticking into your surge protector, letting you know what's at the other end of the cable. That way when you're on your hands and knees under your desk you'll know what to unplug and what to leave plugged in without having to tug and see what falls off your desk. Only $6, too. Not too shabby.
