    Unhappy Beeping Noise At Shutdown/Reboot/...

    Hello,

    Not sure why, but the laptop lets out a couple of loud beeps at shutdown. I do not remember it doing this with other versions of Ubuntu. I have checked the BIOS and did not notice anything. No idea where to check now. Thank you for any suggestions.

    Running Ubuntu 9.04
    Dell Inspiron D620 ATG, Centrino Duo, 2 gig RAM.
    I, newbie, dabble in most Ubuntu flavors.

    My system (Ubuntu 8.10) does a single beep when shutting down. Kind of annoying.

    Is there any way I can disable beeps overall? I figured out how to disable them for my user and set it to do screen flashes instead, but other user accounts still beep and the virtual terminals (ctrl-alt-f1) still beep (along with shutting down).

    its the internal microphone in your laptops/desktops, try turning it off under the sound settings.

    That's exactly what I've done, and it only affects the current user.

    Don't worry this is normal.

    I know, but is there any way to disable it? If I want my system to be quiet, I can turn down my volume, but this beep isn't affected by volume control, and is pretty loud with my system.

    check here for more solutions / links to solutions.

    What worked for me: Turn off sound under System -> Preferences > Power Management -> General -> Extras -> Sound notification.
