Plugged in appliances

Does plugged in items, that are not being used still waste energy?

    Yes. It's sometimes referred to as vampire load. Think alarm clocks or anything else with a clock i.e. Microwave, Stove Top, etc. Even those these appliances may be off, energy is still needed to power the clocks and keep time.
