The only sounds I ever notice or care about are the AC plugged/unplugged 
tones for my laptop. And in checking to see they are enabled, and testing 
them, I hear that they do play, but very quietly even though volume is at 
100%. So there's something still going on with System Sounds. Playing the 
Test sounds in KMix has normal volume though.
