I have written a program where autible alerts are curtical to the functioning of the program, but find the sound shuts off by itself. I use a Turtle USB sound card and a pair of $50 speakers which make the sound quality really good. But after a few minutes the sound goes off and when I check the Windows volume control I see the mute is on.
Does anyone know how the mute can go on by itself? If so, please tell me. If I can not keep sound working, my program loses 95% of its value.
Also, can anyone tell me how to programatically (C#.NET) turn the mute off? If I can not find the answer to stop it from being turned on, I would like to turn mute off before I try and play a sound.
