Turning off the system beeper

This is the magic command that turns off the system beeper:

sudo rmmod pcspkr

And just for completence, this is how to turn it on again:

sudo modprobe pcspkr

Update (Thanks to the ArsGeek site.) This only works for the current session - the beeper is only muted till the next reboot. In order to make the beeper silent for ever, you need to add the following line to the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist:

blacklist pcspkr
