I'm pretty sure having the Record activity displaying full screen  
video, the backlight on full, and having the network enabled, should  
get you very close to the worst case power drain. I guess you could  
also spice that up with some external USB peripherals (external mouse,  
keyboard, and memory stick) if you wanted.
