Of course they only use more power if the Sense launcher is also running. It never shows on my power usage, and I've not even bothered disabling or uninstalling it (BTW don't do stuff like that if you don't know what the possible consequences are and what you'll do if it goes wrong).

I remember a long time ago (earlier generations of phone) people advised removing widgets from your Sense homescreen if you were going to be using another launcher, to avoid pointless background drain. But I've not bothered and not noticed any effect.

Bottom line, there are things you can try if you notice an effect, but I've not seen one myself.
