    How much energy (Amps/Volts..whatever) does the Dual Processor G4 use when its asleep?

    and is there a way to keep the network awake but the computer asleep?

    There's no way to use it as a server when it's asleep, or access it's contents. The hard drive would have to be active. And if you're using it as a router, that's out too, because the processor would be generating heat that the fan would have to cool. I think the only thing using energy would be a trickle going through the power supply to power the LED and enough to keep the contents of RAM alive... Check with specs but it can't take more than a couple of volts with maybe an amp... does anyone else here know??
