this goes here right?

Anyway, every once in a while, from within my imac comes a weird sound, like little bits of plastic falling down. It gives the impression that it's falling apart inside. Sort of a crumbling noise, very light. it comes from the spot where the power button is...

And the other thing I'm not sure is a problem is this: The light in the bottom right corner usually is on when the computer is, but now it is only on when the computer is in any other state from on and shut down. So it blinks when it's a sleep, it's on when the computer is in power save mode, but it's off when the computer is in regular on mode.

We're watching you.
QUOTE Thanks
