Silly me.  I was searching for "hard drive" rather than "hardrive".  No 
wonder I didn't get a hit.

Thanks for the link.  That was the thread I remembered, but unfortunately 
it never reached any conclusion or solution.  

I have tried the solutions related to getting more ventilation to the 
laptop (propping it up a couple inches, etc.), but the clicking continues 
(albeit a little less frequently when I tried those things).  One thing 
I'd like to understand better is acpi.  How do I use acpi to control the 
fan?  Is it possible that I need to do something there?  I don't hear the 
fan running on this laptop like I would expect.

Thanks for the help!
