Power consumption?


Does linux allow you to see what power your PC components are using?

You mean like how much electricity? As far as I know... no. There are several peices of hardware that can be picked up to measure how much electricity your using.

Your welcome! If you actually purchase a peice of hardware that measures your usage, please report back. I'm curious myself as to how much power you really use.
