Question by Chuck: How much electricity does a average home desktop computer use per hour?
If it is used continuosly how much electricity per hour is the consumption? What about in screen saver mode?
Answer by Zidane
Sorry! Got confused with units, this is the real answer!
Computer 350 ~ 500W,
17″ TFT screen about 25W an hour. A CRT of the same size will probably be around 50W, though I am not too sure on that.
With the computer though the power consumption is based on the load, i.e how much hardware is inside and (To a lesser extent) how mcuh work the machine is doing. 300W should be a resonable number to use.
