Is it just a split second crackly noise? If so, are your speakers powered via the pc rather than the mains? If the answer is yes to both questions then it's absolutely nothing to worry about. It's just a bit of electrical noise from the speaker's amplifier as the power shuts off.
If you've got a volume control on the speakers turn it to zero before shutting down. If the noise still occurs then I'm probably wrong...

What kind of sound? A loud beep? Crackly noise?

If it's a loud beep, try this. Go to start>run, then type "net stop beep" (without the quotes). Then, shut down. If it still beeps or makes noise, let us know more details.

This kind of thread must be extremely frustrating for proper Gizmo advisers?
It's like some kid logged in to have his own homework done for him/her & then didn't even bother to come back to plagiarise your thoughts.
It'd be nice if teens were encouraged to solve problems amongst themselves?

No, its not frustrating at all. We are here to provide help, and we happily do so.
But yes, we do expect feedback to see if their problem was solved, or our responses helped them. Many people post their queries, but do not respond back, for some reason or the other. We would like to see them respond back. But, even if they don't, its not frustrating... maybe they have some reason, not do so.

Anupam you're an online saint. But I worry that a lot of (particularly western) kids aren't learning to find solutions to their problems because they can be spoon-fed answers.
I'm going to stop at that because I have no desire to annoy anybody by straying into politics.

Is it a beep sound? More often BIOS can generate sounds during startup (especially during "power-on self-test"), or during shutdown even the sound is muted in Windows. One beep, two beeps, short or long beeps, continuous, it depends on what type of BIOS.

The sounds might reflect some hardware failure or problems. See Troubleshooting BIOS Beep Codes, if it is a beeping sound likely initiated from BIOS, and not like the sound described by Chris from Windoze that doesn't want to die.

I have had a case like this: a newly bought notebook used for a couple of days, making continuous sound before booting up or after shutting down Windows. Finding: a key from the keypad is sometimes stuck and not released after pressing.
