Dear Mark,

I think I had a senior moment when I responded to your query - and had forgotten the reference!

Would you please like to take a look at Toyabe's paper, reference below and see what you think about it getting over the conundrum of Maxwell's Demon - and please then email me if you still have a query?

S. Toyabe, T. Sagawa, M. Ueda, E. Muneyuki, and M. Sano, “Information Heat Engine: Converting Information to Energy by Feedback Control,” Nature Physics 6 (2010): 988–992. [].

In essence it's a microcosm of the entire Universe where when the totality of energy is taken into account, the second law is preserved.

warmest regards,
