    Hi,

    1) You can backup your database using:-
    mysqldump -u"user" -p"password" --all-databases --opt | bzip2 > /data/backup-sql.bz2

    replace "user" and "password" with you database user/password

    2) In a webbrowser enter http://ip.of.you.backend/mythweb/

    3) Not sure about power saving. If I need a low power box I just underclock as far as I can, use a flash drive/usb stick to boot the OS and all data commes from my main server(my backend server runs 24/7).
