Kindly note that I am lately facing a weird issue with my new Alienware Alpha i7 version. The machine is working smoothly, however, when shutting down the machine (start>shutdown) the alpha shutdown process goes well until the moment when the machine is finalizing the shutdown a small long beep is heard right before the power disconnect and LEDs are off.
This issue is totally new as i didn't face it before.
In addition, all windows updates / dell updates are the latest.
Try doing a power drain to the system following this instructions and let me know if that helps you fixing the issue.
- Shutdown Alpha.
- Disconnect the ac adapter.
- Hold the power button for 30 seconds.
- Reconnect the Ac adapter and turn on.

Thats odd I'm haveing the exact same issue and I get the same beep like once every couple days when my system is idle I have the i7 model as well I have read on other fourms that this isn't a isolated issue aparently its the i7 model that does this.
I've tried the solution provided by Dell and seems it's working fine.
What i also did is, when shutting down your machine, remove the power plug from the alienware so it won't deliver any unneeded power circuit.
hi, i already tried this suggestion, but my alienware alpha i3 doesn't power on. If you have any other option regarding on my problems please reply in this comment. Thank you.
I will try to assist you as much as I know as you have to contact Dell support directly.
But as a troubleshooting:
did you double checked the power source?
is the adapter working fine?
Can you try to replace the 2nd end of your adapter (from power socket to adapter 3 pins)
Hope that will help. let me know if any worked.
