They call this phenomenon “phantom drain,” and with diligence, you can reduce the annual costs of your energy bills by unplugging devices and gadgets that are not in use, and that you must persist in this practice over time to reap the benefits.
They also suggest that you use an outlet strip for all your gadgets and to shut the power down on those batched gadgets when you are not using them. Doing this can combat the energy drain on your wallet. They go on further to suggest that you monitor your energy use using monitoring tools such as Smart Meter Texas if you live in the state.
