It's not really the energy restrictions that cause the problems (except for the one useless mode, which is an Energy Star-related issue).

It's that you can't illuminate a plasma with a full-white screen to the same level you can for a partial white screen. The amount of current it would take is just out there and would require far beefier power supplies and electronics and the longevity of the whole display would still probably be too low to be really acceptable for a CE product.

There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...
