Well, according to
the average 19 cu ft refrigerator uses 509W, but is only on 33% of the time. Most common appliances aren't on 100% of the time, but a lot of computers are. Most companies that I have worked at leave computers on all the time. A lot of friends the same thing.
Oh and unless you are getting wind/solar/nuclear power then your computer uses fossil fuel at the energy source.

Well, what about your heater / air conditioner then?
Bet that pulls a lot more.
