Auto Mute Turns Off Windows Startup Sound

Has your kid, co-worker, or room mate ever got disturbed by the loud Windows sound when you switch on your laptop/computer? Do you hate Windows sound and want to disable it? Auto Mute is a dead-simple tool that has been developed for the exact purpose.

The developer behind this app got frustration when his kids woke up by the sound of Windows starting up and finally coded away a nice little program to silent the system sound.

This app simply turns off the system sound during log off, suspend, or stand by mode so that the next startup is quite. Just start the app and make sure all desired options are checked. You can also switch the sound on/off by pressing a simple custom hotkey.

    couldn't this guy have just turned off his speakers so his kids didn't wake up?

    and doesn't windows offer the ability to enable or disable sounds in the control panel?

      Answer to first question: I thought about it too but most people forget to turn off their sounds, happens with me too sometimes.

      Answer to second question: Yes Windows have the ability to disable the sound from the system tray(if icon is enabled), so no need to go to Control Panel.

    Nice program, Just wish i could use it without UAC nagging about it.

    This program is great for Laptops, when i go to library or other public places..
    I just wish i didn’t get UAC nags everytime system starts *windows7*

    I use this with a program called OSD Mute, that displays the word MUTE on screen simular to a TV’s Mute.
    be nice if this program had some sort of Mute reminder that way i would only have to deal with one UAC nag.
