I finally got sick and tired of the popping noise that is caused by waking up the audio card after inactivity.
I am aware of the antipop program but for some reason it did not work for me. Credit for this idea goes to Robert Tomsick http://www.tomsick.n...ts/antipop.html
So I decided to write my own version that works with 10.9
The concept is exactly the same as the antipop program but it actually works (at least for me).
Here it is
All you have to do is set this application as a login item and you will no longer have the popping issue.
- Can not fix initial pop from booting computer.
- Can not fix pop for waking from sleep.
- After switching audio sources there may be a pop.
First I created this applescript.
say " "
log "delaying audio sleep"
This essentially tells the computer to speak every 25 seconds. However there is nothing to say so it won't bother you, but it will keep the audio from being deactivated.
I then saved this script as an application.
To remove the icon from the dock I right clicked the application I created and chose "show package contents"

Then I opened the contents folder and found it's info.plist. I then added this line to the plist.

Bam! Dock icon gone
If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions please let me know
