If the pc is turned of, there is no server, or do I miss something?
Can you give more info from what you want?

Please use titles which describe the problem

You can shutdown the monitor.

So ... let me get this straight ... you want to save energy by turning off your computer, but you want the computer's chat server to continue running.

... I'll have to get back to you on this.

Disconnect mouse and keyboard might also save on the energy since the LEDs are not consuming electricity. Also you could open the pc and disconnect the speaker.

Configure a run level that only leaves alive a basic shell and the server processes you want alive? So anything else doesn't run...

... Then turn off anything not needed like the monitor and speakers and what not... The machine itself will have power saving measures, their isn't an OS that doesn't do things like turn off the monitor and other such activities these days, also unless it's a heavy website your server is going to be idling so much that the machine simply won't use too much power as it doesn't have to... if your motherboard supports dynamic underclocking based on load, that might be something to check out but I am not certain how well that's supported...
