Check libs/libmythtv/firewiredevice.cpp for 
FirewireDevice::GetPowerState() to see how to query for power state 
information.  My PACE 550 box returns "Not Implemented" this command, 
and I've even tried addressing every unit and subunit ID in hopes of 
finding one that would accept the command with no success.  Good luck!
