Most of Bender's chemical energy from alchohol is used for physical tasks (walking, bending stuff, shoplifting, ect.) His head, by itself wouldn't use much energy. 1056 years is a long time, but his head was buried underground, so he probably went into auto-sleep mode (or something similar) to conserve energy. When they dug him up, he still had enough stored energy left to function normally until he could get some booze and recharge.

Modern computers have energy-saving measures as well: the screen turns off, the harddrives power down, etc. All in an effort to save electricity when the PC is left passive for a couple of minutes. I'd imagine they'll be infinetely more advanced in 1000 years.
If everything else fails I'm sure Bender could store all his memories and knowledge on a permanent storage thingy (like a HD) and shut down completely. Leela hitting him with the showel prompted him to reactivate.
