    Question 3 repeating alarm sounds in sleep mode
    My Imac was in sleep mode when it started. It sounded like an alarm clock. i pressed the power button to shut it down. Tried to restart it and nothing happens, just a slight sound like something is spinning slowly.

    Thanks for replying. It was something like that but with continuous beeping.
    I just brought it to the apple store for repair. I've only had it since november, so it is still under warranty. They are ordering a power supply and logic board for starters. They said it would probably take about 5 days. I will repost when I get it back and let u know what the cause was.

    What a bummer but hang in there and trust you don't go though too much of a withdrawal. Good luck with the repairs.

    Got my iMac back, this is what was replaced:
    Logic board
    Power supply with pressure wall
    Cable, Temp sensor, LCD Display panel.
    That took a week. Picked it up, started it up at home, everything was fine. Except, No sound. Had to make another appointment, brought it back the next day. 4 days later, it's back. Audio board was replaced. Running like new again. Thank God it was still under warranty.
