    CS4 Shuts down my laptop when rendering previews...

      Well, by know we know CS4 is a resource hog and needs the latest in gear to function properly, but what I did not expect is for it to cause my older laptop to self destruct (OK - and exaggeration).

      I've got a Compaq nx9420 with a Centrino Duo 2.0ghz 2gb RAM Fast drives, etc.

      While I can open Premiere OK - and navigate a huge HDV project, when I render previews, the fan goes crazy indicating full CPU power - then - whoosh. Instant power off, like it tripped some sort of internal circuit breaker.
