How much current does the computer draw whilst its booting up for how long? What about when you send your computer to sleep. How much current does it draw when waking up? and how much current does it draw whilst asleep? Have you considered the stress that you put on your electronic components when booting up? When the electronics are under more stress they are more prone to burning out. Then how much energy does it take to manufacture a whole new PSU/motherboard/ram/etc/etc (what ever has burnt out)?
I suppose the amount of time the computer is left not doing anything also counts. I know if your turning on and off certain light tubes all day, its more energy efficient to keep it on.
