    Windows 7

    I mute Line-in, but it unmutes itself after time

    I have a video capture device and use line in for audio. When I do not use the device, I like to have line-in muted.

    In windows 7 this worked. In windows 10, it doesn't, because mute doesn't last. I can mute Line-in for a while but it always unmutes itself eventually. It seems especially to happen if i am away from the computer. Sleep/hibernate is disabled and the system does not log off or lock.

    Is there any way to prevent it from unmuting itself?

    Additional testing has found that turning my monitor off and then turning back on instantly unmutes line in.

    I have my speakers plugged into the monitor, which is plugged in through Display Port.

    If I leave Volume Mixer open and then turn it off, then back on, the mixer goes blank and only shows the Realtek Mixer. I have to close volume mixer and open it again for it to show anything else and to be able to mute Line-In again.
