Is the sound coming from any of these areas?

it may be some type of vermin, like mice or rats. they'd be in the walls for floors. maybe that's why you can't see whatever it is. they then stop because of the sound you make when getting up to see what it is and stay quiet untill they feel safe again. or it could just be your house setteling.

This has happened to me either two or three times in the past week and a half or so. It's late, so I lay down in my bed, turn off the light next to my bed, and attempt to go to sleep even though I feel wide awake. I'm the kind of person who gets knocked out very quickly when it's time for bed, so the awake feeling in itself is abnormal.
Here's where it gets weird: I start to hear small tapping/clicking noises, not in any pattern, once, maybe twice, in varying volume coming from the right side of my room by my closet/foot of the bed/dresser. They are anywhere from 10-30 seconds apart. The strange thing is that when I turn on my light again, everything ceases. I check for anything that could possibly be moving, and find nothing.
It just happened about ten minutes ago and I was convinced that it was my imagination until I decided to see if it happened when the light is on. I've had the light on for a while, and there has not been a single sound. This only happens when I have the strange super-awake feeling. Tonight, I also heard what sounded like a knuckle-on-wood noise coming from the attic. I will disregard this as just my house because I am already pretty freaked out, but it did happen when the other noises were happening. I am scared, but I'm mostly annoyed because I really do need to sleep.
Does anyone else have experiences like this? I do not want a ghost. Please give me your input.

So how old is this house? Has there ever been any other events to suggest a paranormal presense? Usually when one thing happens, you'll notice other things too (sometimes they're less obvious, but still there). Do you have the obvious signs of a haunting?
I'd have an electrician check out your house, an exterminator, and anyone else who can rule out all other possibilities before turning to the paranormal.
