OK, ive got this PCI soundcard. WHen i go into standby all is fine and when it comes out of standby it starts playing sound right away as it should almost simultaneously to when the image is displayed. As soon as i enable an EAX effect on like (Advanced EQ 'Pop' ) mode for example in the creative control panel to enhance the sound it takes like 15 seconds to start to play sound after it comes back from standby. The image is on the screen and counting up the seconds of the song but it takes 15 seconds about until i can hear it.

Any ideas? Can any of you guys try it?

Test it using WinAMP
