Whenever my machine hibernates or awakens from hibernation, it plays the
chimes.wav sound in a most annoying manner.
I've looked everywhere in the control panel and cannot see how to turn this off or change it. "Play Windows Startup sound" is not checked, and I even went so far as to select the No Sounds scheme from the System sounds control panel. While this did stop all other system sounds (some of which I want), it still did not stop the hibernation sounds!
How can I defeat this pestilence?
It's a Windows-7 Pro, ASUS laptop.
