Ladies and gentlemen, my computer has decided to become psychic, in a quite frankly disturbing way.

At night, when other people in the house are sleeping, I use earphones. Because these earphones tend to amplify the sound of my music, thus deafening me, I have to turn the sound down after I've put them in. Since I got the laptop, I'd have to do this volume change myself.

However, in the last few days, I've been putting in the earphones as usual, but when I go to check the volume, it'll have been turned down already. Similarly, when I take the earphone's out, the volume will have increased back to it's normal level.

Now, I'm running Vista, which as we all know is the bitch of the computer world. So I'm surprised I haven't had messages up asking me to confirm the change.

Is my computer meant to do that, or am I some sort of mad sleep-walking computer expert?

Maybe it just got the idea you always want it at that volume with / without the headphones so the efficiency of modern technology did it for you

C'mon, it's not that weird.
If you like it, don't complain, otherwise it will go away... That's sort of how the world works

nah man my laptop does the same thing
To all the villianous insects who preach their slanderous, dupliciticious loathing; to each beautiful walking laceration who made me weep and bleed ... I hope you choke

That's cool.
I wish my laptop automatically changed its settings to work better, rather than totally malfunctioning whatever program I was running altogether.

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Whatever your audio manager is it's probably remembering your preferences for your different profiles. Most sound chips these days will detect when you plug something into the audio jacks. Do you just use the laptop speakers normally?

it's far from disturbing. i would pay for my laptop to do the same thing.

My soundcard has a thing where it goes into headphone mode when you plug something into the headphone jack, maybe yours has something similar?
it's a handy-dandy new thing they install on new computers these days which automatically lower the volume when you plug headphones in because the computer is smart and makes your ears go boom boom. But seriously my mac has separate volumes for when the headphones are in or out So you don't have to keep turning it up and down all the time.
