Is there a way to indicate if the sound is set to mute or not using i3status? I know how to show the volume (as explained in man i3status), but it doesn't distinguish between mute or just 0% volume.

Everything on my Ubuntu 12.04 installation works absolutely fine except the volume control. It "functions" but only as mute/unmute in that anywhere on the bar is full volume (the volume doesn't actually change) except when I actually go down to mute it in which case it does what it's supposed to and mutes.
Anyone have any idea? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The sound on this machine worked pretty well until a few days ago (okay, so sound is not the very most important thing to me, but, the lack of it is getting old). When I click the speaker icon it always says "Mute", when I set it to "Unmute" the slider goes to zero. When I move the slider off of zero, the status goes to "Mute".
So, does anyone know what's going on with my system?
I'd love an app that would let me mute apps without muting my music. It would be nice to play games while listening to my music rather than the sound effects or just use the screen images on nav. Anybody know of an app for this? The volume control/mute apps I've seen so far don't seem to make this distinction
Just before going to sleep, i take my tablet to play some relaxing game and listen my music from shoutcast. But the problem is in the volume level. What i mean is, if i start from mute,, and i just press one time the volume+, the sound is too loud, my wife want to sleep.
