as title says
About the same amount of power as a night light.
yeah like a stove! or dryer!
It probably takes up the same amount of power as many of the immature pea-brains around here. Very little.
so does anyone have a proper answer? in watts? i mean, is it like 1% of the power it uses when its powered up?
According to http://www.nwiizone.com/nintendo-wii/nwii/wiis-uses-about-one-tenth-power-of-xbox360/
* In Standby Mode: 10w
* Idle @ Wii menu: 17w
* Running a Wii Game (Test with Zelda / Trauma Center) in 480i: 17w
Meaning Standby 24/7 = 7.2kwh a month = $.72 on average per month
Idle or Game 24/7 = 12.2kwh a month = $1.22 on average per month.
^^^ Of course playing a game meaning the TV will be on so you can add 100-400watts for that
thanks for that, exactly what i needed
bit disappointed that its so much when switched off though :s, i'd probably unplug it
Yeah and save < .72 dollars per month? Big deal that's almost nothing. I'd be more concerned about the XBOX power 'brick' if I had it leaving and running 24/7. Imagine how much that would cost per month.
All this excluding the TV..
Power is not as cheap here as it is there remember, and its not so much the price i'm bothered about, its the fact that the consoles still consumes over 50% of its normal power consumption when its switched OFF.
Although i would like to see how much the xbox and 360 use up when they are up and running
