I will explain some work I did together with Noe Cuneo and C. Eugene Wayne. In it we considered the very simple system of a chain of rotators which is coupled at one end to some dissipative. For certain initial conditions, such systems have enormous difficulty of actually losing energy. If time permits, I will also explain some results for such chains when they are stochastically driven.
