VMware install - how do I turn off that speaker?

May be more of a VMWare question than a Linux question, but I do have Slackware installed on a VMWare virtual machine.. and holy moley, that PC speaker sound is deafening. I mean, god forbid if I hit the wrong key late at night, because my dogs will bark and my wife will leave me.. it's just so damn loud.

I've tried muting my speaker in Windows, turning OFF the sound card in the VMWare settings, but nothing. It's just loud as hell. So, maybe it's a two part question:

1) VMWare people - how can I deactivate the PC speaker alltogether without busting open my notebook and pulling out the wires?

2) Linux people - how can I deactivate the PC speaker entirely?

Wow, my very first question on this forum.
