small ticking sound

Hi: this is not a question about openinkpot itself, but it is related somehow. My hanlin makes a small ticking sound 2-3 seconds after displaying a page. It is not very loud, but clearly audible in silence. It's not the system "pip", it's just 2-3 seconds AFTER refreshing page and kind of bothering. anybody else? May be a hardware fault for my reader, but...

now comes the relationship to openinkpot. This ticking sound does not happen with OI, only with "official" firmwares. Question (curiosity) for developers: is different the way OI handles screen than official firmwares? looks like official firmware is refreshing it in a different (and bothering for my reader) way

My V3 had the same click noise before installing OI, and it doesn't do it now, so it must be something firm related.

But what NONE of you understand is that 'ticking' sound is a countdown timer. When it hits its final tick, it'll start shouting "I am a 30-second bomb! I am a 30-second bomb! 29! 28!..."

I noticed this on my Cybook using official firmware (haven't tried OI). I always assumed this was some part of the display or controller doing something that, well, ticks.
