It is probably down to the motherboard. It may keep the fan running if it is to hot or it is probably just a good idea to keep the fans running anyway as everything would over heat really fast without it even in standby mode.

The fan going is better. Lower temps means longer cpu life. Harddrive coolers are a good idea to.

All I can say is move the computer or your bed.
Maybe sound proof the case with a piece of foam around the case. Or just don't sleep-joke
