My upgrade to WHS 2011 went great and the upgraded server has been rock solid ever since. Except for... smile.gif

I have been monitoring the power usage of that server and in idle it "should" stay ~48w based on what's in it, but it keeps jumping to ~65-70w every few seconds and then back to 48w. I'm running Drivepool, 3 M1015 cards as well as two Ceton cards on it, but for this testing, I removed all cards, but Drivepool is still in there.

"Something" keeps kicking in every few seconds...I have checked the event logs, scheduled tasks etc and cannot see anything obvious. The hardware is an Intel DX58SO board with 8GB ram and an L5520 Xeon, if it matters.

Any thoughts?
