That depends on what you define as "so much". I didn't specify the amount of time I set it to yet, nor do I believe it's necessary or relevant. For all you know, it could be 4 hours before the hdd's turn off, and 5 hours before Stand By kicks in. That's not the point. I wasn't looking to discuss why I'm using Stand By or anything like that.
The point is: when it automatically goes to Stand By (and I want to specify that it turns the hdd's off prior to going into stand by as I do not know whether or not this has anything to do with it), the sound will be muted when I wake the computer up.
Now let me be clear that I have my reasons for setting it to go to Stand By (after automatically turning off the hdd's), so I'm going to continue using it. But what's annoying is that I have no idea why this strange behavior is happening, and I would really like to understand it.
