Is there any way you can mask that ticking sound your computer makes when its thinking/loading?
I dont really have a problem with it when I'm awake, but when im trying to sleep it makes that same ticking noise (i think from the harddrive?) every few seconds and drives me crazy. I would much rather keep my comp on all night then turn it off but I cant sleep with the ticking sounds. Does anyone know a way to make your comp not make those sounds when your not using it? When my comp was new it never used to make it when it was idle but now even after reformatting it still does it constantly. Not even sure why.
Is there anything can be done about this?
You could replace your HDD with a completely silent SSD. If you need the additional storage then keep the HDD as a secondary drive, it won't be being accessed so often so power save settings will shut it down regularly.

Uninstall the botnet aka Windows
The thing is making "backups", looking for "updates" and indexing your files "to improve search times".
This doesn't happen on the GNU operating system unless you schedule an actual backup yourself. I don't know if this is a problem on FagOS as well.

You can disable all those things (and much more, dont forget to disable useless task in sceduler, and scheduler itself if you dont need it for anything) and pretty much all this "somthings happening"s will go away.
But only real reason to left your machine on i can think of is to seed/download and it will work with hdd.
