Low power mode possible ?
When the monitor is put into standby (DPMS), the card doesn't seem to consume less power, at least there's no noticable decrease in core temperature queried by nvidia-settings.
(I query the temp. periodically via a script and store it in a file)
It stays around 62 Celsius.
I have a desktop machine with 8500 GT but I guess this problem is general.
Power savings settings has On-demand VBlank Interrupts checked, Powermizer tab says adaptive clocking enabled.
Is there any way to put the card to really low-power mode ? Is there some X call for that ?
It would be nice... why consume power when no display output is needed.
