Yes that is most likely correct.
Here is the power report from a Six Core Server with half its users accessing it:

1 Good, In Use No Yes 460 Watts N/A
2 Good, In Use No Yes 460 Watts N/A
I agree too. Most components these days consume very little power from my findings, especially when they are practically idle.
Thank you so very much. This makes me feel better. I didn't know if there was a problem or not!
I have a BX1500LCD. Just replaced the batteries. Everything is working fine. Only thing I noticed that I didn't notice before is under Current Status In Powerchute Personal edition, it only shows about 120-130 watts being used??? I have a high performance Custom built PC with an 800 watt power supply, (4) WD VelociRaptors in a hardware card raid, GTX 470 video card, 16gb of memory and a Q9650 3.0ghx Processor. Is 130 watts correct at idle, or just surfing the internet???
