how to disable anoying beep sound???
# 2  
Which beep is that then?

Code:
if (annoying(lastThingHeard()))
{
     setTime(timeBeforeAnnoyingEvent());
     disableSound();
     sleep(durationOfAnnoyingEvent());
     enableSound();
}

that should make sure only annoying noises are silenced.

A wild guess would be the terminal bell, but since the terminal type, OS etc are all missing from the original post it would be very difficult to give any sort of an answer.
