Actually thats weird, its happeneing to me as well...

but it hasnt been so serious as to require me to take it out.

I realize that my uptime is never more than say 12 /13 hours and this
system is on a ups.

Thats interesting, always thought it was a bit weird, but never really
looked into it since noone was really complaining.
