Monsoon MH500 Standby Mode Problem

I have a set of Monsoon Flat Panel speakers w/sub woofer (MH-500) and it's seems that they are going south on me. What happens is that after some idle time (about 6-8 hours, the noise woke me up at 2am this morning) a loud humming feedback type of noise is illicited. I think that this is happening when the speakers go into standby mode. The mute button and volume control on the puck won't even stop/suppress the sound. I ended up unplugging the speakers and I have been doing so before I go to bed for the last week since it first started. I've had the speakers for 6-9 months and they just started illiciting this behaviour about a week or so ago. Any ideas as to what's causing the humming/feedback noise? The only thing that I can think of is that it's plugged into a power strip (surge suppressor) that's about 10-12 years old. Somehow I doubt that the strip would be causing problems but I'm reaching here...

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

What kind of soundcard do you have?
What happens if you unplug them from the sound card?
