I'm measuring 0.350A with max cpu usage on all cores and the following

power off the display
/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -o

switch off the ethernet blinkenlights
llctl f0 l0 d0

Apart from that I read somewhere that the beaglebones have terrible EM
characteristics. But I can't find my source so take it with a grain of
salt :-)
