netgear usb dongle losing power


I've noticed recently when i've been doing high cpu intensive tasks like video editing, my netgear 108mbps wireless dongle has been losing power, i can't connect to my wireless network at all.

if I check the video-editing program down to 'below normal' cpu time or lower, it connects again!

is there something i'm missing here, shouldn't it be able to get power no matter what, regardless of cpu cycles.

(iv'e got a sempron 1.8Ghz 3000+ - any more specs needed just ask)
