If you've got gadgets that stay on even while you rest; like the computer, a modem or even the television; you've probably battled the dreaded 'standby' light. It has the ability to fill an otherwise dark and cozy sleepers paradise with enough fading or flickering lights to make you think aliens are invading your bedroom. You've already told us you hate your evening tech's lights, but what about the ambient noise your bedtime gadgets make?

We've got a friend who's computer is ridiculously loud. Like, think a 747 landing in the middle of a jungle infested with hummingbirds who love to sing along to karaoke loud. And when, after a long night in a great little bar-hopping neighborhood, we crash on their couch, we find that it can be impossible to sleep with all the racket coming from the desk.

Do you guys have noisy personal tech? Does the alarm clock iPod dock hum incessantly? Does the TV clatter? Does the analog wall clock keep click, click, clicking all night long? Let us know in the comments!
