Have been using sleep instead of shut down over the past week and curious about the power output. I only really use the pc 1-3hours a day and it's sleeping the rest.

I measured the power consumption of my 12GB Core i7 920 system at the wall socket using a Kill-a-Watt meter. I found that in "off" mode it took 5 watts, and in hybrid sleep mode it took 8 watts.
