Results of power measurements for 15-849 spring 2009

Assignment: Using a Kill-a-Watt, take power measurements from your laptop and desktop machines in the available active and suspend states. For one of the machines, characterize under light and heavy load (describe the load in the notes, briefly). Measure at least one appliance such as a TV or radio, in both active and suspend mode, if applicable. Add your results to this Wiki page.
