Last night around midnight, I was on my computer setting up iTunes to my liking, as I had just received my iPod a day or so ago. I was playing music as I was doing my thing and I started to hear music in the background, but didn't pay any attention to it, because I thought it was a TV in another room. I checked to see if it was coming from an ad on my computer or something, but when I adjusted the volume on my speaker nothing happened. About an hour after I put my computer to sleep and left my room to go to the bathroom, when I noticed that the TV in the other room wasn't on but I still heard the strange music. I went back into my room and looked around, trying to find the source, I checked everything, my phone, my new iPod, my alarm clock, everything. When I bent over my desk I heard the music get louder, so I bent down lower. When I put my ear close to my computer speaker, I realized that the sound was coming directly from my speakers, while the computer was asleep. I couldn't make out what it was but it was very faint with a male voice, and it sounded like a song, or maybe a radio talk show or something. No matter what I did I couldn't change the volume. I went back on my computer to try and figure it out but nothing would stop it. I put my computer back to sleep and it stopped about ten minutes later. I went to sleep after that very weirded out. My question is has anyone ever experienced anything like this before? Was it supernatural or is there something technological I'm overlooking?
