In the prefs I'm seeing options to check for updates and it's set to weekly, as well as checking at startup. But no options to turn notify on or off.

So it's apparently set to "Monitor AirPort base stations", and open if there's a problem that's making the base station blink amber. Help files says it will "provide instruction to help solve the problem", but I haven't seen that yet!

Thanks for your responses.
