"-nosleep" is experimental... I've had severe trouble getting low latencies
on dual processor machines; one workaround is to have Pd never "sleep" so
it occupies one entire CPU.  It's rude to the rest of the machine though :)

I had already in the past very bad experiences because of this, because pd just stoped the connection with my audio inteface even if the computer was always active. I wonder also if could be a procedure from the interface (Presonus Firebox). I'm on a Mac Intel Os X. Any tip on this issue is precious!
