  1. My computer snores while it is sleeping


    When I close a program back to my desktop my computer goes to a dark screen in about five minutes, just like I set it to do. Shortly after that it starts to play a two-tone chord similar to someone ringing a chime-type doorbell, but softer, like it is from a vibraphone being played with padded sticks. It does it on 30 second intervals and only quits when the power manager shuts the CPU down. Any attempt to discover what it is is futile as it quits as soon as I wiggle the mouse or hit the space bar. For now I just turn down the volume on the speaker but I am open to suggestions as to a more intelligent solution.

    :)
