    When I started my iMac this morning, it sounded like natural gas coming out of nowhere. I am running 10.4.6. There is no CD in SuperDrive.

    Was it just that once? Does it make the noise if you restart it now? :)

    Was is the first restart since installing 10.4.6? If so, then that's why.

    I've been experiencing the same weird noises on my 20" Intel iMac. What's scary is that I hear a faint noises when the iMac is off. :eek: The sound does not stop unless I unplug the AC cord. :confused:

    My iMac intel makes the exact same whine. Fortunately, I don't turn the computer off very often. Do you think that it's something that can be fixed with a firmware upgrade or something I should talk to Apple Care about?
