I've been trying to push a similar initiative at my company as we have 600+ desktops here. However, it's gotten a lot of pushback from our developers and editors who remote into their desktops via VPN on a fairly regular basis to do work from home during the evening. It's a battle I'm not going to win. Like you I leave my home PC on constantly, though.
