Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 646193
Can not control volume while screen is locked
Last modified: 2012-08-16 16:15:37 EDT
Description of problem:
It isn't possible to use the keyboard mute/volume level controls to change the volume level with the screen is locked.
On many modern systems, especially laptops, these software mediated buttons have replaced all hardware controls. In some situations where hardware would be locked down it might be reasonable to lock these controls too, but I believe that this is the exception.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a meeting.
2. Visit a webpage which which will play audio at some point in the future.
3. Leave room, allowing the screen to locks.
(at sometime after that point the computer begins blaring annoying sounds)
Battery removed from laptop, coworkers angry at you, data lost.
Someone pushes the mute button, laptop muted.

This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
