Thanks for the suggestions.

I've been a little surprised, looking at a few setups,
how little energy one can save.
My incredibly ancient PIII with 2 SCSI disks and one IDE disk,
seems to use just over 80 watts in normal usage.
I was sort of expecting I'd be able to get this down to 20-30 watts,
but the really low power systems I've looked at
all seem deficient in one way or another.
