    Mine had that straight out of the box, though after opening and shutting it a couple of times it subsided. I suppose the hinges were too tight and 'using' the notebook got rid of that. Maybe yours need oiling?

    The oiling bit of my post was to be taken with a grain of salt, sorry for the confusion. I can't see how that would be possible without dismantling it.

    I don't think there's anything you can do about it.

    If I go real slow with mine, I can make it sound creepy like a movie sound effect door opening.:p
