I have a nas that I shut down when I go to sleep. But I noticed that it was still drawing a lot off power even in standby so I decided to build a stand-by killer. If this circuit detects that the nas draws less then a preset power then it shuts the output off. To eliminate measuring faults it checks during 5 seconds, if the power is low enougt during these 5 seconds then it will shut down.
I did not like that the 220 Ohm resistor in the power supply got so hot and that there was lost to much power there. So I replaced the old power supply with a small transformer.
The box mounted and connected:
