PNG image size

I'm new to using GIMP. At work I use Photoshop, but at home I have started using GIMP.

One problem I cosntantly have is the size of pngs. How do you reduce the size of pngs?

I have 400KB png, when I save the same image at home in GIMP as jpg it becomes smaller, but if I save it as png it becomes about 2MB - this is huge compared to photoshop

If I use the save for web plugin, the results are the same for jpgs, but if I save as 24bit png the image suddenly becomes 2.5MB.

Why are PNGs in GIMP so large?

PS: I use windows vista, in case this matters.
