The sound is the same as the one you hear when you plug in and unplug a USB device. It beeps when I approach the laptop and leave it and also sometimes when I move in front of it. This is an ASUS, model G73JH.

Possibly there's some software involved doing facial recognition on the webcam to enable/disable functionality of the machine if a user isn't present? I know new ThinkPads have an app that'll lock the machine down if you walk away. – Shinrai May 26 '11 at 19:47

What you are experiencing is the ASUS SmartLogon feature. It is a facial recognition feature that logs in for you and logs out automatically.

Here is the link to the ASUS SmartLogon user guide:

Looks like I'm a good guesser. – Shinrai May 26 '11 at 20:05
I can't believe the folks at Asus did know about this. The strange thing is that when I disconnected my logitech trackman wheel mouse the sound stops. Also when I replace that mouse with a another similar mouse I have no beeps. – Tom May 28 '11 at 4:38
