Current behaviour for unmute is to resume the same volume as before mute was pressed: that is a good feature to have and works well.
However, sometimes mute is pressed because the computer made a lot more noise than expected. Now the user wants to resume sound, but not as loud. If the user presses the Volume up or volume down, the volume should start from 0 (which corresponds to mute) instead of the volume level before mute. This is the way e.g. the new Audi cars does it.
Scenario: Bill presses the mute button because he did not expect such loud music from his computer. He then presses Volume up button to adjust the sound to his liking from silent. If he had pressed unmute the volume would have gone back to the volume when he unmuted.
Nice feature. Will probably implement it.
