Snoring Computer

Oh so softly

I'd like my computer to snore really softly when it is asleep.

You could turn off this feature if you don't like it.

       The snoring computer should also mutter unintelligible things, save for the odd, “no… no… don’t format me… no…”

       Oh. I just decided to stick that up there and see what others think.

       Maybe just put it in your profile.

       Great. And now when it gets a virus, I have to listen to it coughing all night?

       Hahahaha!   

       You can turn it off, if you like. Or maybe that could serve as an alert when your computer has a virus.

       Nothing like a good, lungs-on-the-floor coughing fit from your computer to let you know it has a virus.

       I want this. It would go nicely with the little light on the front of my iMac that slowly dims and brightens in a soothing fashion. Though it keep me awake.

       Brings new meaning to the "cradle" for PDAs.

       I would quite like for my pc, once a year at a random date, to have night terrors.   

       "Noooooo, noooooo, ahhhhgghhhhhh!!!! Not the probe!! Noooooooooooo, agggggggggggggggghhhhhh etc.!'   

       Just to keep me on my toes.

       As long as my work PC can't doze off and alert my colleagues to my inactivity by its snoring!   

       I assumed you meant 'asleap' as in 'screensaver mode' - did you mean that or 'standby' ?   

       It's interesting that nobody queried exactly what you meant - we all seem quite comfortable with your turn of phrase. Have we collectively anthropomorphised computers to such an extent?   

       [+] btw.

       the link works for me, but requires a *download* (btw spelled incorrectly DF)
dentworth, Dec 21 2004
  

       Thanks, dentworth.   

       And yes, sleep mean standby mode.
