I did not see a power usage estimate. I am running PowerTOP 1.11 that
comes with Ubuntu 9.04. So I am not sure if what I did is what you
wanted me to do but I ran "powertop -t 60 -d" with camera enabled and
disabled and here are the results.

Also, when I run plain powertop, it keeps complaining that some USB
device causes wakeups (probably the camera?) and suggests suspending.
But doing that doesn't seem to help things.
