Irritating Noise

May 23, 2007

My old T-Book never made a sound (apart from the usual spinning of disks), after the upgrade to Tiger. It used to make a little ‘wheeze’ from the hard drive as it powered down under Panther.

Another niggle with the MacBook, especially when waking up, is an irritating noise from the Superdrive as the motor receives power. The Superdrive in my T-Book was and still is silent.

The sound from the MacBook never bothered me enough to worry about it, but it must have bothered enough people to make Apple respond with a Knowledge Base article, it even has sound clips.
