If the driver of your sound hardware changes, then the stored state
doesn't apply cleanly, and you will get such a message. I generally
see it every time we move to a new kernel series (i.e., 3.3 -> 3.4).
What I do is to check the mixer settings and fix them if needed, and
then run "alsactl store" by hand so as to update the saved state
immediately rather than waiting for it to happen at shutdown time. At
that point it matches the new driver and you won't see this message
