Try starting your car instead of listening to the squirrels play.

Not a continous short cycle or repeated set up cycles for 10 minuits. This certainly is causing needless wear on whatever part it is that makes the noise. The very fact that it is random and not present in all vehicles tells me it's not right. Ford needs to get to the bottom of this quick and quit insulting the intelligence of their customers with their 'It needs to wake up' nonsense.
It'll stop initializing when you start your car. Start it already
