you can get a Kill-a-Watt and measure how much the PSU is using. That's the only thing I can think of.

Kill-A-Watt won't do that, it only measures the whole computer's consumption. There is probably some software that can track it while it sleeps. Try something like Everest or do a quick google search.

MoM is correct. No software will run while a computer is in sleep mode.

A kill o watt is your best bet even though it will tell you consumption for the whole computer it is the best, most accurate reading you can achieve.

Here are some load and idle power consumption charts for you:
