I most always keep my speakers down but when they are not, I get the alert sounds at times. This is when I am not even in my email or on sites. Every window closed. Why do they come?

It sounds like a chime sort of. 2 notes. Like a sound one can pick from the alert notifications you choose from.

"Device Disconnect" is the name of the sound.

Just my track ball mouse. I never use the touch pad and have that disabled.
