    I realize that I'm opening the door here, but here goes. After my SL install, I'm getting a strange, seemingly random, "ding dong" doorbell noise. Not related to time of day that I can tell. Maybe a coupe of times per hour, maybe less...very strange. The only other thing I did that I'm aware of is installing iStat pro. I have mail running in the background, but it's not any mail noise that I've heard. Any ideas? (I know, I know..."Someone at the door, "My wife calling me, yada yada...). Go eazy on me please... :)

    Do you have iChat running? When I first got my Mac, random noises were driving me nuts until I found out it was the sounds iChat made as people came and left.

    If not, run activity monitor to see what you have running. Something made the noise.

    Did it again this morning with only Safari and Firefox loaded. Firefox coildn't load a page. Maybe a warning in Firefox? Didn't do that before SL. Weird.

    I think it may be Connect360 when it detects the xbox online. Not sure why I never heard it before SL.
