    Although I said the previous workaround solved the issue, the clicking has returned on a fresh install and the workaround didn't solve it.

    After reading your post I have been messing around and it does indeed happen when Chrome is running (and on my comp, Chrome is always running).
    Might have to switch to Chromium.

    Re: Constant speaker clicking in ubuntu

    This is beginning to annoy me a LOT!

    I'm now on a fully updated install of Ubuntu 12.10 fully updated and it STILL happens.

    Kill Chrome and fire up Firefox and all is well.

    Has anyone got any ideas?

    Have you tried this?:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/intel-audio-powersave
    
    I changed the line
    
    INTEL_AUDIO_POWERSAVE=${INTEL_AUDIO_POWERSAVE:-true}
    to
    INTEL_AUDIO_POWERSAVE=false
    I said previously this worked for me but then wasn't working when chrome was running.
    As it turns out, I did have a personal powersaving script running.
    After disabling that, the above workaround stops all the clicking, even in chrome.

    Incidentally, this appears to be something specific to ubuntu since in my fedora install, I haven't modified anything and there is no clicking at all.

    I'm going to assume you did edit the file /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/intel-audio-powersave file's line INTEL_AUDIO_POWERSAVE=${INTEL_AUDIO_POWERSAVE:-true} to INTEL_AUDIO_POWERSAVE=false, as was suggested by one user on this thread, and as I did when I was having this issue.

    I myself am not still receiving the clicking whilst using Google Chrome, so I'm going to suggest that it is most likely down to your installation of Chrome, or one of the plugins that Chrome is using.

    You can reinstall Chrome with the following command at a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable -y && sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable -y
    I would suggest trying this purely because it might be causing the issue. Also, if you could provide a screenshot of the page chrome://plugins within Chrome, as it could be one of Chrome's plugins that's causing the issue.

    Version 23.0.1271.64 of Chrome seems to have solved my clicking issues!

    I'll test for a few days before marking the thread as closed.
