I would need some help in a power dissipation issue.
I have a power opamp that works in a non-inverting topology.
Here some data:
- Single Supply = 12V
- Output voltage = 6+3*sin(wt) V
- Output current = 100*sin(wt + alfa) mA
w = angular frequency
t = time
alfa = angle between current and (...)

Put a zero-volt voltage source in series with all the op-amp stages and then measure the currents through them.
This will give you power per stage - by V*I (of course) and is more useful, than just finding the total power for the opamp.

It all depend on the specification that you are looking for. Most of the time the process we use to design a opamp will be the crucial point as it will limit the design parameters and the rest as others mentioned in the post.

There is short circuit in your schematics on high frequency between OutA of U1 and OutB of U2 through C7. OutA of U1 would not do anything to InB of U2 in your circuit.
This would probably not explain 300mA extra current (80mA is normal excluding loads)

I would use a 1 Ohm resistor instead of 5 Ohms for the current sensing, to reduce the voltage loss and power dissipation.
IIRC, a 741's inputs can't go all the way down to the negative supply rail, so it's probably a good idea to use a different opamp, or change the biasing.
