    Just making sure it's normal. Does anyone else's CD drive on their iBook go "when-eh-weh-when-eh-weh" when they turn it on/wake it up? Doesn't sound like a bad noise, just like it's checking itself or something.

    EDIT: Duh, iBook G4 in my signature is the iBook in question.

    My PowerBook does the same. I assume it's just checking you haven't stuck anything in there whilst it wasn't looking...

    Yep, I know three people (as well as myself) with PB's and they all do that every time.

    I have the same ibook you do, ITASOR, and it wakes up with kind of a "gronk-eh-zeh-zeh-zeh"

    My grandma's G3 900Mhz makes the noise you described there as well, which model do you have?

    EDIT: NVM, saw your sig, same model. :)

    My iBook does it as well. I don't know if it makes the noise during boot up but definitely when it wakes up I can hear the crunching noise.

    My 1.42 does NOT do it, but my 1.33 12" does.

    Weird.

    I feel like I'm missing out on something fun! My ol' TiBook only makes a little "Whir" noise from the hard drive when she wakes up. Maybe if I had a disk in the drive it'd make a noise...

    Pretty sure both my 12" PB and 12" iBooks make that noise, ITASOR. :eek:

    Yeah, thanks everyone. It's normal, the 12" and 14" iBooks in both CompUSA and the Apple Store do the same thing. Kinda annoying when I want to try and be as quiet as possible in class, open my iBook, and it sounds like it's eating something. :eek:
