    Thanks for your thoughts in advance. When I get up off my couch, which is near but not touching my computer, and walk around to my desk, my computer makes the noise it makes when I unplug and plug back in a usb jack. It's been doing it sporadically over the winter. I humidify to keep it less dry in the house. I suspect this is a static electricity issue. This week the problem seems to have multiplied. The noise happens now repeatedly (several noises in a row). Today when I sat at my desk I noticed my mouse was turning on and off (it is hard wired using a usb plug). The systems box is on a table to the side of my desk. Nothing is touching the table (plastic top, metal legs with plastic feet). This only happens when I get off the couch and walk around to my desk. I can walk back and forth by the desk to the kitchen, across the room, and down the hallway and nothing happens. I'd welcome any thoughts.
    Thanks again!
