One beep, starting out low, then ending

Continuous beeping, each lasting about
three seconds. The beeping does not stop. Seems to be CPU related. Submitted
Cold boot only on my
new board (Asus P4T-E, bios 1005) I experienced the normal 1 beep
and then 5 seconds later, 3 short beeps and then my system went into
sleep mode. Changing the Suspend Mode to off OR increasing the # of
seconds to enter suspend from default cured the problem. Submitted
