Idle Power

In a nutshell, the '240e beat our wildest expectations with respect to idle power draw. Bear in mind here that the power numbers are un-adjusted gross input into the motherboard's voltage regulator module and are, therefore, inflated by roughly 30%. meaning that the CPU itself draws somewhere around 3-3.5W power in idle mode.
