Windows 7: M-Audio makes loud pop when shutting down

M-Audio makes loud pop when shutting down

I have a fairly new M-Audio M-Track that works as expected. EXCEPT...when going to sleep or restart, a very loud and annoying pop sounds in the speaker. This also happens when it awakens.

I've tried different drivers, including none but the noise continues.

Any ideas, besides getting a new sound card?

I have a recording studio (Sonar), but use Roland Studio-Capture.

The M-Track is a bus powered unit (gets its power from the USB port) and popping is probably caused by power being applied from the USB port. I don't know how you can stop that. Post on the forum and see if someone familiar with the M-Track can help you.
