    what is this, i simply cannot figure it out. whenever i open/wake my macbook - the laptop makes this sound as if something was just dragged to the trash.

    im thinking its the airport notification but i dont know what or how to turn it off, ANYONE KNOW?

    Is it coming from the speakers or is it from inside the MacBook? PowerBooks and MBPs make a sound that I suppose sounds a bit like the trash rustle when they are opened. It's the optical drive checking to see if there's a disc present...I presume MacBooks make a similar sound. Could this be it?

    Aha! Found what I was looking for. Woohoo for searching! :D

    For me, I get the optical drive noise which I consider normal (so no problem there) and then the fans kick on. The thing I'm posting about is the strange "woosh" noise a few seconds after the screen turns on. It sounds sorta like a drum roll, a "woosh", or a slurping noise, and it goes away after 2-3 seconds or so.. It goes when the speakers are muted/unmuted and when it's plugged/unplugged. It doesn't bother me (it actually sounds kinda cool), but I was just curious as to why it does that.

    I had that happen for a while on my 17" MBP too, but it went away and I have no idea what it was. Definitely from the speaker though...

    yeah! i got the "whoosh" too!! it happened like 3 times while i was transferring my music into my itunes library (brand new mbp 15" today).

    when i first heard it i thought i was hearing things! but then the second and third times i knew it was something!

    now im glad that it's normal!!!

    Me too ! I was actually thinking of asking a Genius next time I was in the Apple Store if it could be anything 'wrong' with the Macbook.

    I get the sound too sometimes waking my MB from sleep. It's kind of sounds like static or something like that...

    I don't care, as long as nothing is wrong. Would be nice to know why it makes the sound though-

    Probably a cackle of static as the chinese electronics in the sound board powers up :)

    I have a sound that is the first bongo drum in a bongo drum loop that plays every 10-15 seconds. Sometimes the whole little loop plays a little bongo solo. I'd say I was losing my mind but I've had others verify it. It's definitely coming out of speakers / headphones. no idea what it is.
