    I just got a MBP 13" (loving it of course). But every few minutes, like maybe 10-15 minutes (it doesn't seem like it's at regular intervals), a quick whooshing sound is made.

    I know that if I get new emails, or IMs, there'll be a little noise, and the icons in the dock will jump up and down, but that's not it. And it's not a mechanical noise - it's a system sound.

    Any idea what this could be? I guess it's not that big of a deal, but I'd like to know what the computer is alerting me about. Thanks!

    What applications do you have open while the sound is made?

    Macbook yes,

    You're right! I just tried logging on at a different computer, and I noticed that it just made that sound. Thanks! It was driving me crazy not knowing what that was.
