My laptop has always made a slight, high frequency hissing noise when unmuted (even if there is no sound being played). I tried in the old forum and nothing would solve it, I tried sending it to the manufacturer and they “didn’t hear anything” and sent it back. Ah, I guess it’s my fault for having good hearing.
Anyway, I’d like to ask my fellow script-writers in the forum if it would be possible to auto-mute the audio when no Application is playing sounds, and auto-unmute as soon as a sound is played.
This would be cool and would allow me to use my laptop normally without worrying about muting the audio every time I finish a video/song/whatever to avoid the hissing.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, actually) today the hissing stops after a few seconds of no sounds and everything is closed again. However, this is usually not the case. I will try again when I hear hissing without sounds playing and report back.
