I'm considering buying a time capsule. Alternative would be an external firewire drive.

Comparing these two options raised a question: I assume the time capsule hard drive is on continuously and thus consumes considerable amounts of electricity. Or does the hard drive go to sleep when idle?

Does anybody know what the average power consumption of a time capsule is?

many thanks
