W541: Beeping sound when the thinkpad trackpoint is pushed.

2015-05-29, 1:42 AM

I own a thinkpad w541 laptop. 3 months old now. I have noticed that whenever I reached the end of a scrolling page if I continue pushing the trackpoint to scroll on, a series of beeping sound comes out. The beeps are continuous, some times 5 beeps sometimes 7 continuous beeps depending on how hard I push. Is this normal?

I did some experimenting and find out that it will only beep whenever I pushed the track point too hard and that it will only happen when there are nothing left to scroll (end of a page). Is this normal, does anyone else's thinkpad has the same behaviour? My current guess is that it is some sort of warning alert to let us know that I am pushing the track point too hard, but then again, I just want to be sure. 


Thanks in advance guys.
