[SOLVED] How to toggle mute/unmute audio?

I am trying to blind special keys (on ASUS EEEPC 901) and Volume +, Volume - works fine with "amixer sset PCM 5%+", but with "amixer sset Master toggle" I cannt unmute (and I am not sure what it do is to mute big_smile).
To have sound again I have to execute:
alsactl restore
So, there's another way to do it properly or it's a bug? (becuase this is how I had done in Debian and it worked)

Thank you for reading it.

'amixer sset Master toggle' typed into console works for me. Does it work for you too and the issue is just with the multimedia key?
