Hey Chris, Todd and Rick. 
What interfaces are you using? and with what software?

Very best, Ariel.

 Don't know if this helps, but I ran a powerbook G4 for the last year
 straight doing 4 hour jobs, 1-3 times a week in clubs, bars with a
 live drummer and had no problems. Not even a single glitch or anything.
 Ofcourse until New Years Eve when I came home and got out of my car
 and dropped it about a foot or so. Lost the display and using a
 brand new macBook now.

 I also keep a fan on my laptop live the whole night too.
 The laptop sits on a heavy duty music stand with a fan
 attached underneath blowing up. I use iTunes for the between
 set music also.
