What if we changed the sounds for login/logoff to the ones for 
plugged in/unplugged power cords? (Also used for 
suspending/hibernating, etc) It's consistent because the sounds 
are already used for notifying the user of "leaving" events, 
etc, plus they're all fairly short. They are also already part 
of the Oxygen sound theme, preserving consistency in that
