The Active Protection sensor is only tested by an extended power on self test(POST).  The extended POST also emits a beep when it finishes successfully.

Enter BIOS Setup, select Startup, select Boot Mode and choose Quick instead of Diagnostics.  Your machine will boot faster now and not beep unless something is wrong. 

The beep volume can be adjusted with the volume control buttons too.
