I am going through the painstaking process of cable managing my computer setup. I use a glass desk so i can't screw anything into it. My biggest problem is the fact that no amount of 3m double sided tape or velcro straps with make by power strip and power brick stick to the bottom of my computer desk. The two devices will stick for around 30 minutes before falling off. I looked up this issue and was met with a multitude of ideas which all suggested to screw a wire box into the bottom of my desk. I don't want to buy a new computer desk for the sole reason to get rid of the terrible sight of a drooping power surge and power brick.

How about just use a simple thread between the legs of the table, and sort of using that as a cable bridge? Cost is almost nothing, but require some time and effort so it doesn't look bad.
 
This is used for holding servos in model aircraft and is far stronger than any other tape I have tried. If a servo falls out of your aircraft then most likely your model crashes and the servo can be put under a couple of kilos of pressure.

If the table is all glass, I would have stay away from tape (glue that turns out being impossible to completely remove).

Maybe bounding up some spiral cable holder would be the least messy solution.
