This is an easy way for my grandson to turn off and on the light he has in his room.
Mortgage Hill
I like to use these three prong (with ground) switches whenever I'm plugging one into an outlet or cord that accepts them.

Well worth the money, I also bought a spare, just in case I find somewhere else to use one.

I have these switches all over my house to control whichever device I want electricity going to at the time. I use them to switch on the laptop transformer, miscellaneous music equipment, music room spot lights, Etc. Etc.
Any place you want to control the electric power going to something.
They are made in both the three and two prong configurations and I always buy the three prong when available, as you can then use them no matter what the application.
If using them on a power strip, they will take up two plug spaces and you can only use one on a two outlet wall plug.
I have only had one switch fail on me, but was able to take it apart and repair it; no problem.
Look around for a better price, as Amazon is not always the best deal on these.

I was tired of pulgging and un-plugging my light in the garage, now it stays plugged in and it's accessable from the flick of a switch!, i must say it was better made than I had anticipated, will mostlikely order a few more for the house and workshop.

I wanted a 3-prong single switch to use in the outlet with my laptop so I would not have to unplug the laptop to conserve energy every time I shut down. This switch is perfect. Now I can leave my laptop plugged in and not have it using energy even when it's off.

I'm using the second switch in combination with the Belkin Conserve Socket. I can reset the Belkin without having to unplug it but, if I forget to turn the Handy Switch off, the Belkin will still shut off the power at the end of its time cycle.

I highly recommend this switch for those looking to save energy with convenience.

The switch has very good mechanical action so it snaps on and off "soundly", BUT while the switch snaps to the ON position, it doesn't always make the electrical connection so the attached device doesn't turn ON. The switch lever must be "jiggled" to make electrical contact. The first one I bought got to the point where "jiggling" would not always make contact, so Amazon replaced it, and the replacement is slightly better, but still requires occasional "jiggling" when turned on.

With this handy device, it is easy to control electrical power from a receptacle located in a wall outlet, or in a power strip. You simply plug it in, and then plug in the device you wish to control. Designed for indoor use, a switch like this works well for controlling lights, powered speakers, battery chargers, power tools, game consoles, small appliances, and holiday lights.

The unit is polarized and ungrounded, and will accommodate only two prong plugs. One negative is that because of the size of the housing and location of the switch, the assembly can block access to an adjacent receptacle, either in the wall or in an outlet strip. If this switch was a little smaller and less bulky, this would be a 5 star product instead of only four. The price at Amazon is a quite high, so you might want to check your local hardware store for a better deal.

These are very handy, especially if you run a computer with Windows. After a couple of updates to the Windows system on virtually every computer I have owned in the past 30 years, they stop shutting down on their own as they should. They go down to the point where some driver is still hung in memory and the only way to get them completely off is to either turn off the hard switch which is always in the back of the computer and impossible to get to, or unplug the power cord, what I have had to do for the past year. By plugging this little monster in between the power plug and the outlet, I just wait until windows has it hernia and won't go down any further, then I throw the switch off, wait for the power light to go out, and flip the switch back on. Next time I want to start the computer I just turn it on as usual. Saves a whole lot of work. Of course, you can use these for trival jobs like turning lights on and off but that would be rather boring.
