1, Go to BIOS- insert+ F1

2, Go to "Config"

3, Go to  "Alarms"

4, "Disable" what you need

 

I did it this way and my SL 500 is silent when restoring from stand by/hibernation. 

 

Good Luck

whiskyinc,

 

You can go in the Power Manager under "Global power settings" and uncheck "Beep when power state changes".

Are you in the ThinkPad Power Manager (Start --> Programs --> ThinkVantage)?

Then you can open Windows' Device manager and click on "Show hidden devices" --> Non-Plug and Play drivers and disable the device called "Beep".

 

Thank you

I've stoped the service, but it still beeps. Do I need to uninstall it?

You've right-clicked on "Beep" and selected "Disable"?

 

If yes, try to restart Windows...

Again - there is no such option (on other devices are, except in Non-plug and play devices).
