For entertainment purposes, I thought I'd share.

PoE with PoE->12VDC splitter, idle in both cases:

Advancetech Atom N450 uATX board: 18.6W
(occassionally trips the 30W class 3 PoE limit during POST)

Compulab SBC-A510, Marvell Armada 510: 9.2W

No contest. Granted, 9.2W is still a lot (SheevaPlug draws about 7W from 
AC flat out), but it's still a hell of a lot better than 18.6.
