I have mine on ALL day long, and alot of times I'll just leave it open , alot of times on my bed.
I have noticed a loud one time click not a buzz like yours that has started happening with my 1012 base model, maybe once a day. I'm sure its the hard drive, but software says that my S.A.F.E enabled hard drive shows that everything is green light normal.
My sister and mom have there own exact 1012 model and they havn't noticed any clicks from there model. They also keep theres on all the time , but still don't use it as much as I use mine.
Im not too worried. you might want to try a program like Belarc - System Management For The Internet Age or "SIW System info" . They can check your S.M.A.R.T hard drive and see if there are any problems, I doubt there are any.

What hard drive did Dell install on your netbooks? Mine came with a Seagate.
