    I got home today and went to turn up the audio to have it not do anything. When I hit the volume keys the icon appears on the screen but it doesn't move up or down. I can't move the volume control in the menu bar either. I've tried restarted and my system is up to date.

    Is there a red light coming out of the audio jack?

    No, headphones(normal and usb) work fine. IN the sound preferences in the Output section there is only "Digital Out" Built-in Output when nothing is connected.

    Edit: I was playing with the headphones and now there is a red light coming out of the jack.
    Edit: It's off again... :-(

    This is an issue with the optical drive and the light apparently comes from that. Just plug and unplug your headphones until it works - that is the only solution that I know of, perhaps Apple has a better idea.
