How Many Watts Do We Need? ASA 5505

My ASA 5505 getting pretty hot after a while and so I used a wattmeter to find out what´s happening.

260 watts is quite a lot if the device is running in idle mode and has no active device attached nor any config has been installed.

What's your experience of the ASA 5505 power consumption ?

Thanks

The PSU says output 48V DC 2.08A, which gives me around 100watts usage, so that would create alot of heat if the psu is burning 160 watts of in the ac/dc conversion. I have no measurements on my own, but i am definately not expecting that level of power usage
