When is the Time Change for Daylight Savings?

When does daylight savings time change back to eastern standard time?
I don't know when the time changes this year, 2010, I was sort of hoping you guys would know. I think it's this month, but I'm not certain about the specific date and time.
When is the time change for daylight savings?

Why we fool ourselves by turning the clock forward and backward twice a year ? I did not see any energy saving because buildings still turned on all the lights day and night.
Is it true that America is the only country who doe's this? and why do we do it? for what purpose?

Beginning in 2007, most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S.

The annoyance of resetting clocks or forgetting to, and showing up an hour early for appointments on Sunday, may raise the question of why we bother with this rigmarole in the first place.
We change our time each year to save energy and to have longer hours under the sun so you wouldn't have to turn on the lights earlier.
