My system specs are listed in my signature.


I've had an issue for a while now involving my external speakers, and my wireless headset (Logitech H600). Let's say that I'm using my external speakers, and decide I want to use the headset. Before the headset will function as an audio device, rather than a communications device, Win 7 forces me to go to Control Panel > Sound, and manually set the headset as the default audio device. When I want to go back to using the external speakers, I have to use the same process. In the past, when I turned the headset on, Win 7 automatically set the headset as the default audio device, and then reversed that configuration when I turned it off.


I've searched around, but can't find any information about this. All drivers - for both the onboard Realtek HD Audio and for the headset - are up to date.


Any ideas?
