Default audio notification from system

FC16.
What is the daemon that plays a sound, seemingly
at random, and it sounds like a rattle ?

I have heard this while running previous versions of fedora.

I'm fairly sure it is DE dependent. One can make KDE quite noisy by going to "System
Settings-->Common appearance and Behavior-->Application and System Notifications".
Applications such as T-Bird have their own settings.... My cat managed to enable
that, in the middle of the night, and it took a while to track down the "random beeps".

Well, my current (and first time use of) is xfce4.
I have had this on my machine for several iterations
of fedora, from as far back as fc4. I had been a gnome
user until fc16, where gnome3 really made my day

I looked at Settings->Appearance->Settings->Event Sounds
It is not checked.
I continue to get this rattle sound being played many times
while system is up and running.
I checked thunderbird, and it has all it's even notifiers unchecked.
Is there anything else to look at? I would really like to put a stop
to this (without having to mute the audio output).

I forgot....what DE are you using? xfce?

Do you have this file on your system? And can you play it to see if this is the
sound you are hearing?

/usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/trash-empty.oga

No, I played the sound file you mention.
The rattle I hear is like RRRRRRR
It is kind of faint, and fades quickly to silence - has that
rattle I am trying to express with the sound of the letter
R as the Scots roll their R's.
In school, we uses to use our small rulers by placing
the ruler flat on the desk, with most of it sticking out,
so that only a small part of it was on the desk, and
we would press hard with one hand on the short end,
while we would snap the free end.

While typing this message, I laptop made that sound 3 times.

frikin' thing is annoying!

Mute your system sounds. If you still hear it, it's hardware.

Well, it is kinda starting to sound more like a hardware issue. I suppose I've
assumed you've eliminated that....

You can always go to /usr/share/sounds and play all that is there to find if any match.

I have done that. It is an audio sound.
