    I think a few of you are being a little hard on the OP. I can see that happening. I totally did not know that the media volume didn't lower along with the others.
    What exactly can make the media go off? Would it have to be an app that I opened and used right then? I would totally shrivel up and die if my phone went off in church or something like that! I always just turn down my volume all the way and figured that was enough.

    Do No Disturb does not silence media. I suppose the assumption is that if you are choosing to open media, you are choosing to hear it. Do Not Disturb prevents the phone from making noise without your immediate participation.

    And for those of you guys having problems. You are aware you can simply press your volume button, click the gear icon on the volume popup(settings), and then it will bring up your ringer, media, notifications, and system volume sliders. Pretty fast and easy to change your volume levels.
    Thanks, that I did not know, easy, peasy now.

    But not nearly as fast and easy as simply flipping a physical switch on the side of the phone (like on the iPhone).

    Would be nice to have an option in sound settings to toggle. Or ohhhh maybe clicking the volumr button down can control media while long press controls the ringer.. (HEAR THAT GOOGLE) the people speak! Lol

    I use Tasker. On Mondays and Tuesdays when I'm in the office, my phone is automatically silenced at 8 am. Tasker turns the sounds back on at 16:15.
    I wish Tasker had a "for dummies" version. Too complicated for.me.

    Yes, it can be complicated. I just played with it til I figured it out.
    You can google Tasker profiles to see some things people are doing.

    You can also look into the my profiles app.

    I have yet to be burned by my Note 5, but I sorely miss the hardware silence button on my old Palm Treos.

    Now it's take you phone out, unlock it, hold a volume key, tap on Settings, silence all sounds. Slow and painful.

    Volume Ace, as previously mentioned, is a great app. You can set up sound profiles with one-touch toggles, or set it up to open the app where you can select the desired profile if you prefer.

    I have Home, Work, Mute, and Loud profiles set up on mine.

    This is the best response. I created a profile called "Tomb" as in "silent as a" that silences everything except call volume. Perfect, easy to select quickly. Thanks.
