No – that’s not right! We need less power.

Did some more testing before going to bed last night. First was my HTPC while off. That draw’s 3.4 – 6.7 watts. While off. Not in S3 Standby mode, but off. A little bit of thinking and I remembered that there are other things running, like Wake-On-Lan etc, which I could probably turn off in the bios and save me leccy.

The other thing was the socket that has the wireless router and cable modem attached. This I expected to be low. Nope this is running at 13.2 idle and peaks at 13.9 while downloading a 150mb file at 230kb/s and running uTorrent.

The only things I really want to test is my main rig, my new monitor, my old monitor and big TV.
