After what time is the consumption in W in the PC calculated?

After it powers up and loads the operating system, and any excessive use of the hard disk has ended.

You need to make your questions more readily understandable.
I am going to make a guess, but that's all it is,
and base my answer on that.
Power is instantaneous. There is no calculation "after" a period of time;
the calculation is made continuously.
As an example, if you switch a 100 watt light on for ten seconds
and then switch it off, it will consume 1,000 watt-seconds ---
100 watts X 10 seconds = 1,000 Ws.
Power consumption for households and businesses
is measured in watt-hours and kilowatt-hours:
The calculation is (number of watts) multiplied by (number of hours).
1,000 watt-seconds is equal to 0.277778 watt-hour.
An electric clothes dryer might consume 3,830 watts, or 3.830 kW.
If it is operated for 20 minutes, which is 1/3 of an hour,
it will use 3.830 / 3 = 1.276666 kWh in that time.
