Screen off = much less power?
Authored by: MattHaffner on Jan 28, '04 11:48:01PM

My guess is that when the LCD is off (i.e., you're running an external monitor), the power consumption is much less and the heating is not as much of an issue. That being said, I've certainly gotten the fan to run even in this state with CPU or GPU intensive tasks.

It would be nice if they clarified the situation.
