I gave up on finding why my top won't work, and followed the disconnect process in the manual. I don't mind manually working the top, but ... it is really heavy. Am I fighting the hydraulics (and if so, what do I do), or is the top just that heavy?

Also, how do I shut off the buzzer (it goes for eight seconds every time I start moving sfter a stop, very irritating in traffic), and turn off the orange top not locked icon?

You can relieve the hydraulic pressure. In the trunk, on the left side, pry the round plastic cover off the hydraulic pressure screw. Turn the screw fully counterclockwise. That will release system pressure and may make it easier to move the top. BTW, service manual says " do not open top manually".
I pass that along for what it's worth.
I can find nothing on killing the buzzer. Good luck.
