Also note that, as far as i understand, it only makes a sound if you in the same software.. i.e. a different tab of firefox or chrome. It does not (and i don't think it can) issue an alert if you are in another application.
Please fill this out:
Operating System: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Scripts/third party programs used: xxxxxxxxxx
Also take note of this to further diagnose your issue:

It's not that I want them to do that, but I'm sure the reason is to preserve the battery. My laptop is 5 years old with Bang & Olufsen speakers, and the battery has gone to shit so that's probably why. If I wanted to I could find a way to turn that setting off somewhere, but it's not really an issue for me. I was just being thorough in my testing to pinpoint the problem here, it's an issue others may have for the missing audio notifications or it could be specific to a few laptop models.iAmCaffeine wrote:Why would you want speakers that go into standby?
