A co-worker lent me a plug-in power meter and I spent an evening measuring stuff...
|Sun Sparcstation LX||37W/63VA|
|14" CRT monitor||60W/100VA|
|17" TFT monitor||2W/7VA||39W/66VA|
|PC: Athlon 1.5GHz||4W/11VA||110W/170VA|
|electric "tube" heater||220W/220VA|
I was slightly surprised to see that the TV/hi-fi/etc in the living room consume 34W in total when they're not actually doing anything.
