Here's what my meter reads on my office computer:

1.Everything on (cpu & monitor) 107 KWH

2.Everything on (sleep mode) 97

3.CPU on (monitor off) 49

4.CPU sleep mode (monitor off) 53

5.CPU shut down 03

6.CPU shut down (monitor off) 01

Apparently, it's better to turn your monitor off than let it go to sleep mode (# 3 & #4).
