20% of 1200W = 240W. Efficiency is measured as % of rated (i.e. peak) load, not of actual load.

A killawatt quickly disproves that the waste factor is 240W, or even 100W for a 500W PS.

Interesting... how? A killawatt measures the total input load, not the output efficiency. You need to measure the output DC loads at the same time as you are measuring the input AC load to measure the "waste factor".
