    So, when the fan shuts down, there's a noise for a second or so right as the blades stop spinning. Hard to describe, except that it sounds a little like an old-fashioned table fan that's just the tiniest bit out of alignment. The fan sounds normal when spun up.

    Anybody else notice something similar? My only concern is if it's a bearing going out and it might cause issues down the road.

    I think this is normal. The same happens with my SP4, and when I posted about this on a different forum, a number of others confirmed that they had the same noise. Probably just the sound of the fan aggressively powering down.
