Well, i can wait the 8 seconds (well with Bios maybe 15 sec) the machine 
needs to boot.
I don't know what you consider a lot of power (here 60-100W depending on 
apps running - anyway it doesn't matter where you put the bar),
but what you say sounds like i don't care about environment/ other 
people, which is provocative and sounds ignorant for
some people at the place where i live.

There are 8-10 hours where i sleep and another 8-10 hours where i am at 
which is at least 16 hours of 3W power consumption -
i don't need the VDR running at that time, as long as my recordings are
taken care off. If i should need it from external, i can wake it up by WOL.

Think about it !

Anyway lets keep any further discussion about that off-list.

Kind Regards
