    I was talking about the Mac, but I just reread your post and it says unpowered. :)

    I'll get these readings. My screen is controlled by the Carnetix P1900 (EVERYTHING power related goes through this). So the screen should be going into Standby with the Mini.

    Where did you buy it? I've looked and even called some manufacturers (Belkin, Dlink) and they all say they don't manufacture any anymore. Which one do you happen to use?
