Default Detecting Current USB Device Power Consumption


Ok, so I've just had a crazy idea, which may well end up with me in a psychiatric ward, but here goes...

I have a Window 7 PC running 24 hours a day in my shed, which has pretty poor security and has been burgled twice in the past. I also have a USB-powered Yoda desk protector. When someone passes in front of the sensor, his lightsaber glows green and he says a Star Wars quote. My question is, is it possible to detect the current power consumption of a USB device that has no data connection of its own, using the Windows API? If it is, maybe it's possible to have the PC send a text to my mobile as soon as someone enters the shed (the PC is already running an SMS service, so the text part is easy). If it's not, don't worry, I'm already embarrassed for asking.
