Hope you can fix this problem. The problem were also in RC3

The way to provoke to problem.
goto config. change volume settings to logarithmic. Start MP, listen to music, put the pc into S3, turn on the pc again and listen to music, then you can not turn up the volume.

Hope you can fix it. Thanks

    Hi and Welcome to MP.

    Thorough report, many thanks for that, but unfortunately Vista has many foibles\oddities that have required us to use the Vista setting in MP config.

    So atm, please use this.

    if this vista setting is going to be kept, could I suguest it should be a checkbox so that the other settings can be used in vista mode. I for example would like to use the custom setting to get a lot finer volume control (I go to 35 steps, I think the default is about 8). actualy I would like to see my volume settings as default but as they probably don't fit anybody elses system that probbably won't happen. A checkbox enabling vista mode for the custom settings would be good.

    also, the wave/master volume setting doesn't apply to vista - they both do the same thing.

    I know no Vista oddities :) The different volume behavior is just a difference (improvement on Vista side) how the volume is handled. All applications can have own volume setting and much more.

    to a degree, it is the same thing in XP, if you use the wave volume control with the master volume set to 50% then the lowedest you can go with the wave volume control will be 50% total volume, dispite the wave control saying 100%. now the master volume limits the total system volume (same as XP) but the individual volumes (for programs now rather than wave) show only how lowed they are as a total system volume (can not be higher than the master volume). so though the vista imporvments seem very different they are partly just a diferent way of looking at the same thing.
