Noise on wake from sleep?

Message #1 - Posted 2004/06/17 - Norm

PB G4 15" Al Combo.

New computer and just noticing that whenever I wake it from sleep there is a "click" noise. Sounds like it may be coming from the Combo drive. But my hearing is not the best. ;)

Had a PB G4 Ti SuperDrive and no such noise. So trying to figure out if there is any problem or not.

Is it normal?

Thanks.

Mine does seek up the Superdrive on wake from sleep. I think it's the normal behaviour. :)

Mine does it too, so I would say yes. Presumably, on waking up it's checking that you haven't shoved a disk in there while it wasn't looking.
