When pushed to the limit power steering can draw upto 6 hp! Takes a few milliseconds for the idle computer to catch up to this sudden power draw! When you turn the A/C on the pushbutton sends a signal to the idle ECU a few milliseconds before the compressor comes so that it doesn't kill the engine.
