I noticed the other day that my PC will chirp at me occasionally even when the speakers are turned off. Mostly when I use the keyboard when I am not supposed to. How about making this overide a configurable option for essential events. Such as mail arriving or warnings. That way I can turn my speakers
off or down without worrying about missing key events.
