I experienced the same thing when installing the FD13 on Toshiba
Satellite U505, Dual-Core Proc. i3, 4G RAM, 500 G HD.
Before the release of FD13, I installed the beta version  and noticed
NO blinking (vibration). The blinking occurs when the beta version
received updated. To avoid this, I edited the grub.conf so that the
machine is not booted from the updates beta kernel (equivalent to the
supposedly-stable FD13).
It is the reason why until now I keep the old beta  FD13 and  not
installing the stable one.
