If you are using a laptop, there will be a battery monitoring service (acpi battery method.) As for my own laptop (dell inspiron 1720,) and for another friend who has a gateway laptop, the infamous (and MADDENING!!) dropouts and gaps in firewire audio completely disappear as a direct result of disabling this service. That evil service can cause giant spikes in latency every 20 or 30 seconds. Also, disabling the wifi brought our numbers even lower. Hope this helps someone with the same problem.

i didnt know there was a difference between one stream of data or another, as far as a computer is concerned. if you feel like explaining that, i am all ears. well, uh, eyes.
Hope this helps someone....... yes it did yes it did
