    I can't seem to figure this out, but it seems like whenever I plug in headphones I get a constant volume out of them. I can hit the volume button all the way up or all the way down, even hit the mute button, but it won't work. I open up System Preferences --> Sound --> Output and as soon as I do it seems like the volume buttons will work again. This is only with headphones. It's like it doesn't recognize them or something until I go open up the preferences. This is a new unibody Macbook 13.3" 2.4GHz if it matters

    Now it's doing it even for speakers...doesn't matter if it's headphones or not...and opening the settings doesn't have an effect
