I have an iMac with optical audio out, connected to Logitech speakers with a subwoofer. When browsing the web, the audio system would go to sleep, then I'd hit a page with a Flash ad, and even though the ad was muted, the audio would activate with a startling "blump." This product works as advertised. I am glad to be rid of that minor annoyance.

I have this exact same problem running a MacBook Pro (15" Retina) through a Thunderbolt dock. Problem is, I'm running Windows 10. Does anyone know of any good audio keep-alive apps for Windows?

I originally installed this sometime back on OS X 10.6. Worked great! This past weekend I did a clean installation of OS X 10.8 on my MBP and then started noticing that annoying *pop* sound again! I had completely forgot about that! I did a quick search for 'antipop' on this site and was glad to see this is still around. I installed it and am glad to say that this little jewel is still rockin' under Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)! Many thanks to the developer!

thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm usually quite into 'pop' but not when it comes to external speakers on my blackbook. It drove me nuts! Now it's gone. not a single bloody pop since I installed antipop 2 days ago. Although it's basically a simple script rather than an 'app', it's clean code, well done and effective. Good work :) did I say thanks?

Well written, responsive developer, does the job. Yes, update to 1.0.2. The change was because some people found that 1.0.1 only launched some of the time on a restart. Until Apple addresses the problem, this is the most elegant solution.

I just installed 1.0.1, and almost immediately there's 1.0.2 with a change in from launch daemons to launch agents. I don't know one from the other. Should I use 1.0.2? Does it matter? Can someone educate me? Thanks.

I'd recommend this be installed under /usr/local/{bin,share} instead of /usr/{bin,share}. Thanks!
