    It's strange that the answer is still not here.
    Just rename this file
    C:\PF\Panasonic\Hotkey Appendix\HKEYAPPV.dll
    to something like HKEYAPPV_old.dll
    and your sound (including mute control) will work forever :)

    Do the hotkeys still work after doing this?

    I personally almost never use the hotkeys, but they are very important to others

    Of course they work :)
    And you can always rename that file back if you need it. But you will not :))

    P.S. I think you'll have to restart after renaming :)

    Stolen from the web.

    What is Hotkey Appendix?
    This applications shows the available hot keys for the device. A hot key is a combination of keys or a single key on a keyboard that, when pressed at one time, performs a task (such as starting an application, launching a web browser, etc.) more quickly than by using a mouse or stepping through a series of menu items. A hot key control is a window that enables the user to enter a combination of keystrokes to be used as a hot key.

    Overview
    Hotkey Appendix is a software program developed by Panasonic. The most common release is 9.0.1000.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. The primary executable is named hkeyapp.exe. The setup package generally installs about 3 files and is usually about 1.17 MB (1,230,776 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 61% of users of Hotkey Appendix come from Japan, it is also popular in the United States and Germany.

    I had this happen to me while working on a CF-29.
    While getting ready to swap out a hard drive I used the hot keys to mute the sound.
    It must have changed some setting in an eprom to totally disable sound because I was not
    able to get sound from the unit until the hot key drivers and apps were loaded again so
    I could then enable the sound again.

    I like ramble-on sentences :hi2:

    Quoting this because it has a cross platform application. (Windows and Linux)

    I have had a problem with a Linux program (actually two un-related problems) that were fixed by going to stand-by and return. (Close lid and re-open)

    Whether it will fix your sound I know not.......it's just interesting.
