Probably nothing to do with OS X, probably a function of your monitor kicking on. I wouldnt worry about it.

if it's an iMac (CRT model), did you update your Firmware before installing OS X ?

Not a simple prospect if you don't (still) have some version of OS 9 installed, but still doable.

This is just too generic - give specific information about your system please.
