I hope you all don't use a cheap PSU, but a _good_ high efficient one,
which really draws less power when idle instead of generating heat.
Some PSUs are only efficient in a sweet spot, instead of being
efficient over a broad range, even when being idle. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_PLUS for a quick and not so in-deep
overview (and the reality may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer).
That does not compute.
