My macbook has started to make some static noice. its sounds like crackling. it comes and goes. volume control does not effect it, nor does an power settings. it just seems to come on every 5-10min and lasts for a few minutes. its faint.
does anyone else have same problem? any solutions? ideas?
Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.3)

    This has happened to me to.

    A friend hypothesized that it might be something where the speakers are for some reason picking up some of the activity of processor? I'm not sure because I'm not a gear-head about computer inner-workings, but that might be it, I'm still trying to find out.
