    Only just noticed this on my 24" iMac. if you are looking at the iMac from the rear the hissing comes from the top right corner. You can hear it when the iMac is powered off or when it is in sleep mode. It sounds like a psu hiss...

    Can all iMac users please check theirs for me and let me know.

    EDIT: You have to put your ear quite close to the heat vent and also have a quiet room

    Mine has a slight buzzing sound but not a hissing, and it doesn't emit any sound whilst asleep

    Is your 'buzzing' sound occuring when the machine is off?
