It does not matter how often people repeat that (and even if KDE has
an option to "disable composting to save power") just running a
composite manager should NOT require any more power.
If it does it is just broken. In fact it should use LESS power if done
right (less wakeups because you don't have to update the whole screen
every time something changes),

Let me say this again a cm DOES NOT require more power than a non
composited desktop. (notice the NOT)

My laptop uses 6.9W-8W when running compiz, and about the same when
running metacity (intel GM45).
