comment How to estimate potential power savings
The ILO keeps a bit of history. This is easy to test. Run a server in both modes for a day and compare the graphs. I would have posted examples had the OP provided server model and generation information... pulling teeth

comment How to estimate potential power savings
Can you also explain how you're being billed for power? Is it per-server, per-circuit, are there thresholds you need to match, is this a co-location facility/data center, or are you trying to meter your utility power utilization??

Can you provide more information on your servers? Model(s), operating systems, workload, etc.

You can get support on the server just fine. It's just a bad drive choice because there are better options.

comment How can I access the bios remotely on a desktop computer acting as a server?
It's not that handy. It's possible to manage machines remotely, But the need for BIOS-level access and the other value-add features that server-class OOB offer shouldn't be necessary for workstations.
