HTPC Power Useage

Something I never really considered is the amount of power useage my Media Center setup used. Wtih a few clients, a server, and a test bench you can see how the power cost could add up to be a significant portion of a power bill. Stanger, a well known SageTV user, has detailed his power useage over in the Sage forums.

But now I'm paying again, and after looking at my bill, I wanted to know exactly where my electricity was going. So, Kill-a-Watt in hand, I set off to determine what power was going where. I'm not quite done yet, I need another probably two-three days to finish my measurements, and I'll update as appropriate but I thought the current results might hold interest for my fellow Sage enthusiasts.
