Shutdown problem

When I shutdown Al on my laptop, my harddrive emits a loud "click" sound.  Why is it occuring? - is it harmful to the drive?

Depend on what you mean for loud.
Normaly on all hard drive when you shutdown the system the heads goes in a safe position. On laptos hd the sound is more loud due to the little dimension of the hd. Little hd are more noisy than bigger one.

I've used Red hat and Windows... the click is AL specific. Its not the cdrom either. Imagine the click sound your hard drive make when read/writing, and amplify it.
