PC Power And Electric Use

I tend to leave my PC on a lot more nowadays downloading etc. Does the PC use more electric the more you use it? And how much roughly would it cost in elctricity roughly being kept on say 24 hours.

'Does the PC use more electric the more you use it?' Means running a lot of applications at the sametime, downloading, encoding, burning etc!

I'm one to talk.... 6 PC's in the house and 2 lappy's :)

But we all need to think about saving energy..This animal I am currently typing on has a 1000 Watt Psu and will use if required.

I do switch off at night, and have recently fitted green central heating.
