I like Window Maker, it is clean and it is light. I am running Mandrake 9.1 and observed the following behaviour: My computer beeps every now and then. This only occurs when I use Window Maker and not GNOME or KDE. However, I could not find a setting in Window Maker that will explain this. Any idea? Thanks.

Is the "beep" a system beep (throught he pc speaker) or a wav beep through your soundcard?

It is a system beep. In fact after further investigation, I realized that it beeps every hour. I don't know how to turn it off. Thanks.

Just out of curiosity, don't suppose it beeps on the hour every hour does it?!?!

I'm not suggesting that it will make a difference as to finding the solution, but it mite help.

I figured out what's wrong. It is the wmclock program. I can't diable the hourly beep so I kill the program on startup.
