My SlimServer doesn't have a keyboard, video or mouse attached at all.
I haven't worked out the cost of leaving it running, but I think 25
GBP sounds about right. I don't spin down the disks because of the
wear and tear that causes.

That machine used to be dedicated to the SlimServer, but I've moved the
local CVS server onto that machine to keep it company now.

PS: You seem to have an expensive taste in beer. :-)
