Issue: When laptop is suspended, pulsing static noise through the bottom air vents

When laptop is suspended / sleep (Windows), there’s static noise coming through the bottom air vents. You can hear it when you put your ears close to the vents.

Anyone else seeing / hearing this?


It very well could be the fan or an audio driver not turned off all the way. Once I get my DIY one up and running I will check it out more for you.

Have you tried the updated driver pack (in Public Beta Public Beta Test: BIOS v3.03 + Driver Bundle 2021_08_31) ?

I was having issues with Realtek driver battery drain in Sleep. This update has fixed it (FYI you DONT need the bios update to do the driver update) I no longer get Realtek messing around in sleep/draining.

I have a newborn so there’s always a sound machine on, so no idea if it was happening on mine before the update.

On latest Realtek audio driver.

It (the static) sounds electronics related. (This is not from speakers, nor the headphone jack)

Just to complete the infomation in this thread:
@pixelforest has been able to reproduce the issue on his end:

I have experienced this too I think that something is strange with the drives sometimes if i move the my external mouse it will make this sound.
