    Hello,

    Recently my Mac is behaving strangely. It sometimes emits the puff of smoke sound (the one when you are removing icons from the dock) that I don't know where does it come from.

    I am using a MacBook Pro, OS X 10.5.6.

    Thanks for your help.

    Are you running iChat when this is happening?

    It's just the sound to go with the animation of an icon disappearing into smoke when removed from the dock.

    I believe the OP is telling us. That his mac is randomly generating this noise.
    Are you accidentally removing app icons by mistake?

    IM apps can do this when someone on your buddy list signs off.

    No I didn't remove icons from the dock. It just randomly generates it.

    It just happened to me again. I am now running:
    - Safari 4 Beta
    - iCal
    - Preview
    - iChat
    - Photoshop CS4

    Quitted iChat, and the sound is still emitting.

    EDIT: I just found I have turned off the "buddy becomes unavailable" sound some time ago I forgot. In fact, other sounds from iChat are turned off, too. So, not related to iChat. Thank you for helping me.
