Windows 7: When computer awakens from sleep mode, WMC has muted everything

When computer awakens from sleep mode, WMC has muted everything

Hi everyone, I have an HP laptop with Windows 7.

Every time I awaken the computer from sleep mode, everything is muted (if WMC was running at the time the computer went to sleep). The only way I can get the sound to come back on any application is to shut down WMC.

I have checked the manual mute button on the keyboard, and opened up the Windows speaker icon and looked at the mixer and everything looks normal. I have updated the audio drivers in the device manager.

I would like to start up the computer with its remote control and watch recorded programs on my Samsung TV (using HDMI cable), but I have to go over to the computer and shut down and re-start WMC to have any sound.

Can anybody think of any other settings I can check?

Does anybody have even the smallest of an idea that I can try?

Mine does the same most of the time. I find that clicking the mute and then releasing it seems to bring my sound back. Hope one day to have enough time to try other things. GL

Computer starts during sleep mode
I often put my computer in Sleep mode - as a matter of fact I changed the Power button to say Sleep instead of Shut Down. Just recently it started coming on all on its own even though I'm nowhere near it. This will happen at different time intervals after I put it to sleep, no pattern,...

Recently installed Win7 and sp1 on new computer. Now I can't get the computer to wakeup after using sleep mode. I have to press the power button on the computer for a few second till it shuts down; then restart. The restart shows windows resume rather than "bad shutdown".:confused:
