Have you heard any beeps from your Mac when starting? (not the startup sound)
You may want to try the Apple Hardware test, also.
may be getting off topic, but my g4 "beeps" whenever it wakes or starts up. just a really short, totally old-school computer beep sound, like something from a commadore 64 or something. but it runs fine. ive always wondered that those beeps are. do you know what they are and should i be worried?
