I have an aTV 1 40 gig internal hd and 2tb attached external hd. Being that you can not power off the aTV, both the aTV and external drive are always on.

I am not sure of the power consumption that is happening here. Is this set-up using a lot of power? I'm mostly concerned with the power being used while in an idle state (not being used)

Thanks

the external should use little to no power while idle its only using power if you here the disc spinning
