Sound on Shutdown

Does it seem to be two "notes" long?  With the second one being a bit lower in 
pitch?  I've noticed one of my machines making that sound on shutdown, but 
only one of them.  Specifically, a desktop machine with no speakers attached 
(I'm using it as a server) makes the noise, but my netbook doesn't.  I'm 
pretty sure it's some kind of BIOS feature, but I don't remember if it 
happened before I installed Tanglu.
