    My boss gave me her laptop to look at this weekend and I've got a strange issue. The cd drive is making a revving noise in around 5 second intervals when I close the ibook's lid. Here is a video I shot of the noise; it keeps repeating in short intervals (not shown in video). Any ideas?

    Have you tried resetting the PMU per Apple's instructions?
    I dont know if that will do it but I just figured I'd offer a suggestion seeing that no one else is replying.
