I too found that AF-S is required for the headlight to blink on.
So, I'm certain a little more playing will get the beep to sound as well. But fact is the little musical note in the lcd is there but the audible note doesn't sound regarless of H or L setting or ??.
My first Nikon digital, the D70s is still rather new to me after a month, but I did get used to it's incessant focus beep (never got used to it's balking shutter without being focused). The D700 is strangely silent although I appreciate it's willing shutter release under any circumstances.
What a difference in images tho. Family members are placing dibs on the D70s but think I'll keep it for eBay/web images...it's quick and dirty...well quick.
Digital quality is approaching film. Not there yet but mighty close and convenient, but the D700 with the 14-24 is like carrying the 4x5 weightwise. Have to get a MB-D10 with a load of batteries and will be able to skip the gym.
Good thing there is no D700 operators test to pass before taking it out.
