clicking sound after shutdown - Dell xps m1210

I have installed PCLOS 2007 on my Dell XPS M1210 and everything is working fine. The wireless card is natively supported by PCLOS and the NVIDIA driver is working great. My only problem is when shutting down. At the last second, when the PC is about to turn itself of, I can hear a clicking sound of the hard disk. When I shutdown using windows, I dont hear this clicking sound. Does this sound has anything to do with any shutdown options in PCLOS? or are there any shutdown options? thanks...
