    Hello and welcome to the Windows 7 Forums. :)
    This sound was probably being played from a program other then Windows (something pre-installed with your PC)
    What's the exact make and model of your PC?

    First. You need to enter your Power options - Change power settings - Change Advanced power settings. Now scroll down to "Lid close action". What have you got here? You should have shutdown or sleep?
    Ok whichever you have chosen, now go to Sound - sounds. Experiment with "sleep" or "Exir Windows", or even "Log Off"
