comment MacBook Pro “clicking” while muted when showing a message dialog in Windows on Parallels - what's happening?
hobie - thanks for the answer! As Tetsujin says, can you edit your answer to include the relevant details, please? This site tries to keep knowledge on the site, since links can vanish. (It's quite fine to have a link, just please include the key bits here too.)

Thanks Mike! I still have the problem occasionally, and I'll try out your solution next time it occurs.

comment Spaces in Mavericks: apps do not remember their space
Re the bounty I added, to describe my problem: I have the main space, and to the right, a space for a fullscreen Parallels instance, and to the right of that, a space for Mail. However, Mail always opens 1 to the right of the main space (not 2), and Parallels always opens to the right of Mail, instead of in between the main space and Mail space. This is in spite of rearranging the spaces. Mavericks does not have the "Assign to..." dock menu item, and apps do not appear to remember their last assigned space. "Automatically rearrange spaces" is turned off.

comment Spaces in Mavericks: apps do not remember their space
Unfortunately in Mavericks this doesn't solve the problem either. It stops rearranging spaces, but it doesn't make apps re-open in the space they last used.

How is this the accepted answer? These menu items do not exist in Mavericks, and the question title is clearly about Mavericks.

Any idea why it's audible only when on battery, though? Is the sound card permanently on when not on battery, perhaps? I've never heard the pops before, including when turning the laptop on, which presumably powers up the sound card too...

Nice - that makes sense!

Thanks. I'll contact them too. It is bizarre that a VM issue can cause sound output on a supposedly muted machine... but not impossible ;)

Interesting! Do you have a link to the Parallels bug knowledgebase or similar, please?

It has a SSD. I don't think it's a hard drive click.

Rewrote question to remove original question - too misleading, now that I've narrowed it to other circumstances
