Sound is usually just one of the optional presentation modes for notifications 
so such a switch could effect those as well.

However, while a shortcut might indeed be handy sometimes, use cases like 
fullscreen video, presentations, etc. should probably be handled 
automatically, e.g. like such applications usually already disable 
screensavers or monitor powersave modes.

Basically switching the notifications syststem into a presentation mode 
profile which by default could e.g. log all notifications for later viewing 
instead of showing immediately.

Definitely a good idea, has anyone considered adding it to the brainstorm 
section on kde-forum.org?
