    Has anyone else had this? After watching video in the videos app, the lock/unlock click sound is super loud. Even with the sound turned all the way down. The only way I can get it back to normal is to play some music or something from Youtube.

    What I realized is that the sound of the lock/unlock click matches the volume level of the videos app. However, even after quitting the videos app, the sound doesn't go back to match the general volume level unless I use the speaker for something else.

    The locking sound had always ever so slightly irritated me. Thank goodness it can be muted in Settings>Sounds (scroll down, right above Keyboard Clicks).

    +1. Annoying, but figured it was just a glitch.

    As I mentioned in another post, this is most likely due to iOS 5.1 feature that turns up the volume for movies and tv shows. However, it appears that there are issues with the volume returning to normal levels once you finish watching the movie. Not sure how things such as this do not get caught by QA, but anyway.

    Sound Effects... it's an option...

    Settings
    General
    Sounds
    Change with Buttons (ON) & OR Adjust Ringer and Alerts

    If you enable change with buttons, then outside of any program that has audio playing, using the volume controls allows you to change the loudness of sound effects such as clicks, ringers, alerts, etc. Or just slide the Adust Ringer and Alerts inside the menu above to lock it into place there.

    Very welcome, I keep mine adjustable as my wife has a habit of "paging" me at work. It's embarrassing with a loud alarm at full volume, better to keep her nearly silent. I bump it up at night though so I wake up on time.
