I don't know about IE.au3 but what's wrong with _INetGetSource()?

_INetGetSource() would be the most efficient way for you to get the source. If you need IE.au3 (for example if the page source you want is not a static page, but the result of some clicking or form submission) you can use

$oIE = _IECreate("http://your-url", 0, 0) ; URL, don't tryAttach, invisble
$pageSource = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE)
_IEQuit($oIE)

You can also _IEAttach instead of _IECreate, and _IEBodyReadText or _IEDocReadHTML -- see the helpfile for more info.

Edit: BTW, Example 5 for _IECreate in the helpfile does something similar to this, but returns a specific portion of the page

Yes, it runs as though it is interactive (because it is). There are registry hacks to turn off image loading and disabling Javascript, but they affect all IE sessions.

You could start it and let it run invisibly and use _IEAttach to connect back to it when needed - then you'd incur the overhead of the initial load only once... just realize it will not exit on it own,
