I was playing with my plex server earlier and noted through HWmonitor that my plex setup only uses about 2%-6% processor power to play a movie. All of my movies/ tv shows are H.264 MP4's in 480-720P, so I know a potato can run the server. They don't need trans coded to play on any device I use.. I noticed that watts used was switching from 4 watts to 28 watts every second. I limited the processor power to 15% in power options and now it goes from 2.8 watts to 6 watts. But it still bumps 25w sometimes This is just an old E6410 with the battery removed. It has an I5 560M, I think 2gb of ram and the plex library is on a 1tb external drive. Is there any way I can really shut down processor power? Ik I can turn off HT but not sure if it will do anything. Or does it really matter?
