Every so often environmental groups look into the energy wasting propensities of always on devices. The Natural Resources Defense Council environmental group turned its Sauron-esque gaze upon the Xbox One and its Instant On mode and the report isn’t very favorable for Microsoft.
It’s not like Microsoft is completely ignoring this issue. It has managed to reduce the power consumption for “Instant On” from 18 watts to 12.5 watts. But that’s not enough for the NRDC.
