Using a “Kill a Watt” measuring device.
I plugged the UPS power cord into into the Kill A Watt and took measurements
|Computer Running Idle||Sleep||Pegasus R4||Pegasus R4 & Aerca||Mac Pro Net|

Without sleep mode on the Mac Pro 213 I am burning through about 234 watts unnecesarily if I forget to shut down.
Thats not to mention that I still have the Mac Prol 2009 running – usually idle.
