    A note for powerbook 12" and 17" Users who have JBL Creature Speakers..

    If you have Creatures, you need to HOLD onto the top and side housing of your Powerbook to be able to turn UP the volume or Muting it.

    It does not affect turning it down.

    This seems to be an issue caused by the way JBL have made volume control send the signal digitally down the speaker wire back to the sub, which due to some shieling or bad design won't work unless plugged into a grounded device/person

    To add to this,

    If you unplug your power adaptop, you can't turn them up or down.... without holding on that is
