Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.
Unit was in sleep mode.
Power button was tapped to wake the unit
About 10 seconds after the unit become fully awakened...unit emitted a series of beeps for several seconds.
No errors displayed on screen.

I have googled somewhat as where to look to find a log or the sort for this but have not found anything.
The unit appears to be running fine....I did have a {not responding} in the titlebar of FF later...but that could be due to a large number of tabs open.

I have looked through event viewer to try and locate anything related...but dont really know what to look for or if I am looking in the correct area even.

I have had the unit for over 2 years have never had beeps before...havent added any hardware recently.

I dont know if the following could be related..but I have been getting the checkdisk on startup last few weeks..always checks good..I have ran the wd health tools..they show good.

Where does one locate the log related to the beeps that occured?..if they do make a log?
