Introduction
The power settings for my Xbox had been left on "Instant On" from the day of launch until earlier this year. With your system in Instant On the fan runs continuously drawing .16Amps/19Watts. Putting your console in its Energy Saving mode only draws .03Amps/4Watts. The amount of filth inside your power brick will depend on several factors such as the energy mode you keep your system set to. If the fan isn't running, obviously it isn't drawing in more dust/debris than it would if it was on. The last step has pictures that show just how filthy your electronics can get over time and the importance of cleaning them in order to keep them functional.
