I remember seeing numbers for the idle power of the mini being on the order of 10watts. However, my mini (2011, i5 2.5GHz + Radeon 6630) seems to be burning 24watts idle. I thought maybe the discrete GPU was just burning a ton of power, but apple's page implies it should only be a couple watts more - I should be seeing ~14W (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3468?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US) If I trust iStat menu, it's reporting: CPU A: ~3w CPU FSB: ~1w CPU High side: ~2w GPU 1: ~5w Graphics Module: ~8w Northbridge 1: 0.3w Northbridge 2: 1.2w DC Input: 25w Since the DC input seems to equal the sum of the components, I'm guessing GPU 1 and Graphics Module are separate draws, so I'm showing ~13w going to my GPU. I am not pushing the GPU especially hard - only have 2D programs running. I do have dual heads, but unlpugging one doesn't seem to impact the power draw (unlike my 2011 iMac where the 2nd head add +30w!) Are others seeing this level of idle power with the 6630? Or is my system acting strange? Thanks!
