  One of the first things I do is turn off all sounds.  However on my desktop 
I enable beeps in konsole.  On my laptop I don't.  On my laptop I constantly 
miss konsole events, whereas on my desktop I do not.  Actually I never notice 
the visual change even when I'm working in konsole at the time.  I have 
somehow mentally tuned it out, which is not good.
