I can't speak for the D90, but I assume it is similar to the D300, which I own. I hear a real faint, hi pitched noise when activating the cleaner. It's very faint, and easy to miss, and only lasts for a quick second. Nikon uses an ultrasonic cleaning system, not a vibration/shaker system, so you shouldn't feel any vibration.

My D-90 is silent when "shaking it off". And, yes I believe all Nikons DSLRs show an estimate of the number of shots left on the memory card when switched off. - That is a good thing.
