    I like to stream music from my PC (running Win8), and shortly after I lock the screen (Win+L), the audio mutes itself, however the music keeps playing as if it wasn't muted at all.

    I've gone through the audio settings, but can't find anything that would prevent Win8 from muting the audio when the screen is locked.

    Has anyone run into this, and found a fix? I'd like to be able to play music from my machine while locked.
