Noticed this just now in the activity monitor, Idle Wake up is fluctuating around 300 - 500, and up to around 1100 when booting. What does this mean in plain english? Is it a cause for concern?

An Idle Wake Up is the number of times a thread caused the system to "wake up" from an idle state in order to process the thread.

Not sure that there's a "good" or "bad" number for this. You might want to check your power settings to see if the Mac is set to idle or sleep after just a short interval.
