    Tell me "how" Apple fixed this? I am working with 10.8.2 and the problems are not gone. If my IMac wake up out of hibernation and my tweetdeck app is still running its crashes my speakers with all tweetdeck sounds from  the last hours when it was in hibernation. Come on Apple fix this "buffer" sound problem! JEzus Christ!

    This is clearly NOT fixed in 10.8.2 release.... Just got my new mbpr and it worked fine (sound on wake) in mail and notifications...


    Following activation of Power Nap, on wake after power Nap takes place, the sound in Mail is gone... It is somehow related... To test this, I disabled powernap, let it sleep a few hours woke it and sound remained... reactivate powernap and upon wake after a few hours sleep, the soind is gone in Mail events once more...


    Will clearly need to be addressed in next release (10.8.3)

    it's more than just the powernap... my new air loses sound for mail/notifications when I shut the cover and it sleeps.  I foudn that that hind to use the activity monitor and quit the audiocore process helps for several days.. but then at some point it goes back to being sound-less again.  I've quit the audio core process 3 times now in the past month.  I do not have power nap on.

    I have the same problem with my rMBP all Alert sounds stop working but are somehow waiting in a queue until I go into Midi Setup select anything in the channel Pop-up (even re-selecting 2ch-24bit integer) and then I get al the sounds in a stream coming one by one


    It looks like it happens after its awaken from sleep (and I have PowerNap disbaled in my case)


    Do we know if this has been aknowledge by Apple as a bug?



    My Setup:

    Retina MBP 15"

    OS X 10.8.2

    PowerNap: Disabled

    Have the same problem here....


    Keep getting this SWOOOOSH sound like "hooooo... hssaaaaahh"...


    I checked all the sound effects in Mountain Lion but non of them sound like that. The only thing I can do right now is to turn the "Alert Volume" really small.


    If any body found a solution to this, plz share! THANKS!!!!!!

    Yep same with me.  Its totally crap to have such a setback which Apple has STILL not addressed since these complaints go back months.  I keep missing that I have new mail as there are no sound fx.  Then days later they all come back (the sound fx) blinging all at once in one hit.  For god sake, sort this crap out will you Apple! Mad annoying.

  • Ferenc.Szakacs Level 1 (0 points)

    It is amazing how important such a sound effect could be. I was really missing it.

    I believe I found a workaround, which is not a solution but it solved the problem at least in my case.


    I simply disabled the Power Nap for both cases with and without power adapter and I restarted my MAC. The mistake I made before was to diable power nap only for battery operation.


    Now I have no power nap, but I have the beautiful mail sound effects and it makes me happy.


    Thank you for the idea.

    My pleasure! :-)

    I hope this isn't the beginning of the end for Apple. After plunking down a small fortune on the rMBP I can't hear mail notifications, the stickies in the dashboard automatically revert back to yellow, and my trackpad (aka "top case") needs to be replaced after only a handful of months of light usage as the hard click started sticking, which is not only annoying but has also resulted in untintentional inputs. Frustrating to say the least when you pay top dollar and then feel like a chump beta tester. Will try disabling power nap for now regarding the system sounds. C'mon Apple, get yourselves together. I guess the reality is their core users of the past are no longer the core users of the present.

    I have the opposite problem! I can't shut off the bloody mail noises. If I could package them up and send them to you silent chaps, I would.


    Very annoying.

  • dmauch Level 1 (0 points)

    The most troubling aspect of the whole sound problem with Mail, is that I've now been reading about it for many weeks/months and not a single acknowledgment from Apple or a reassuring indication that they are working on it as a known issue that will be resolved soon.  What a great message to send not only to their loyal customer base but to those considering buying for the first time.  As an Apple customer for over 30 years having purchased scores of hardware, software, peripherals, etc., this situation is more than serious and I'd really have to give it some serious thought before buying again.

    it is truly very sad. moreover one would think it was somerhing very EASY to solve. i am sure folks in Apple read SOME of these disscussions SOME of the time. a little communication would go a long way, i absolutely agree with you dmauch

  • Jensen Gelfond Level 2 (285 points)

    Apple never posts in the discussion boards. If you want a dialogue directly with Apple, then you'd have to call them. If you want to give feedback that is guaranteed to be read by Apple, the place is

    Jensen,  Your response sounds like the typical bureaucratic big corporate "we don't give a f**k."  With all due respect I think you've missed the point.  It would be safe to say that Apple has received hundreds if not thousands of calls about this issue let alone the same amount of online feedback over the course of many months and they've obvioulsy chosen to either stick their heads in the sand, OR their software engineers haven't got a clue as to how to fix it.  Either way, it seems to me that both Apple's longtime loyalists and their newcomers have reached frustration levels that will now began to adversely effect their future purchasing choices.  If you produce and offer attractive leading edge technology and designs without the requsite support, the value of your stock will begin to tumble as in today's news just announced.

    I am not passing judgment, simply commenting on what to expect (or not) from discussion board posts here. I am in the same boat in waiting for a solution from Apple.
