    When I first installed coconut battery I saw ~10 watt draw. I was amazed that now that the computer is plugged in and only a virtual machine + browser and itunes is open it reads as over 650 watts![​IMG]

    Imagine the power draw if you were running flash as well. :p

    You realize this is definitely a bug in CoconutBattery, right? :p

    I'm getting a 651.8 watt reading. Definitely a bug.
