Yep, that's what it is. My GS does it and my mothers X3 does it as well, its normal there was a discussion in the 3GS forum thread on this. I'll see if I can find it.

True. Something like 8 hours, actually.

I've had my ES350 for a month, but haven't noticed any noise when it's off. How long does the sound last after it starts?
