    The flicker gate website is directing to malware (here on Mac OS at least). May want to check it out and remove the link.

    It's Mac specific crap-ware, so maybe that's it:

    I can assure you this machine is clean. See it even rhymes.

    Watergate was the name of the hotel, it wasn't a scandal about water, so why does everyone refer to every slightest scandal as XXXX gate. It's lazy and dumb.

    I had an SP4 for a while and my sis has a new SP - neither of us have noticed anything. Probably like the old coil whine GPU/PSU issues - infuriating if you get it, but very much pot luck.
