I left the movies tonight (The Avangers was fantastic!!) and my iPad was resting comfortably between my bucket seat and he center console. I had a carload of kids each with varying devices like phones, kindles, iPads etc. when I'm driving it s not uncommon for my iPad to issue an audible email alert. This is caused by my iPad jumping on one of the many xfinity hotspots around town.Originally Posted by Malaca
With that said five minutes into our ride I, and all 3 kids, heard an alert none of us recognized. I cannot be positive but I swore it came from the iPad. I dismissed it as my not hearing clearly or one go the kids farting around. This is the second time since upgrading to 5.1.1 that I've heard what I believe to be an iPad issued alert, both while driving.
I have a tool called system status that grants me access to the iOS logs on the iPad. I checked about a half hour after tonight's incident to see if the logs could offer any insight. Nothing jumped out but these logs are big and too much time had passed before I dove in.
Today I plan to clear the logs and hope to reproduce the alert as both times I think I heard it I was driving so I have errands to run and intend to monitor the logs and device behavior while puttering around town.
Will post update and any log entries of value sometime tomorrow (today actually) .
Nobody is crazy.
Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.
While driving around?
You've probably already thought of this, but I'd concentrate on localization and perhaps background GPS tasks. Some GPS tasks like Find My iPad and Find Friends can be activated by another person remotely (if authorized). I've never heard an alert when this happens, but you never know.
My ipad 2 does th same thing it make this sussuu sound randomly
Mines just made the "susuu" sound. Thought I was going mad, glad to see someone else is experiencing it. Mine is iPad 3 iOS 5.1.1. This is the second time it has occurred. Could it be one of the apps running in the background?
Here is a link to someone who extracted the system sounds into mp3 files. You could try downloading them and giving a listen. It might help tracking down the problem.

Mine seems to be generated by Simms Freeplay. I set a simm growing some veg and closed the smart cover, and hey presto "susuu" . Opened the smart cover and there was my veg!!!! Repeated it three times and got the same results.
