Unhappy Snap Crackle Pop

I hear my electrical outlets pop or snap about four-five times a day. sometimes it pops at 5am and wakes me up. I beleive I have narrowed it to 2 possible outlets which would be on the same breaker (both in my bedroom). What could be causing this to happen and what should I do?

Maybe those three little guys from the cereal box got in there.
With all kidding aside thou. I would check it out as soon as possible. It could be very seriace like arcing, or something as miner as to much pressure on the plate and it is cracking. With the power off check inside one, and let us know what you find.
Also check the plate to see if it cracked, if so still check inside one, or both.

Last time I saw this was due to aluminum wiring. In what year was your house built?
