KDE: How to turn system notification sounds off ?

I've started to use KDE instead of Gnome latley and I like it alot.

Tough I have one problem and that is the sounds that KDE has when I open/close and maximize/minimize any window. It's so damn loud and when I play music or watch a dvd I doesn't want to hear it.

How can I turn this off ? I've looked all over the controle panel but I can't find anything about it there, also looked if I'm missing any software for KDE that could fix this for me, but so far I haven't found any solution to this.

Please help me out, I'm getting crazy

Control Panel

under the quick controls
check the box "apply to all applications"
and then click Turn Off All Sounds.

this stop all system/program sounds.
