I am having trouble with mute. Ever since I upgraded to 12.10, if I have the system muted the sound will automatically unmute if an application that uses sound starts playing something (mp3, video, etc.). Anyone else having this issue and/or know how to fix it? Thanks.

Which laptop model are you using? It seems like the issues are similar to this question: askubuntu.com/questions/125367/… –  djlynux Oct 23 '12 at 13:22
The problem is on my desktop system and is not related to a physical mute button. I'm using the software volume control's mute button (the speaker icon in upper right corner of the screen). –  Robert Wright Oct 24 '12 at 13:01
