amixer oddity

Hello all,

My laptop has a mute key with a built-in led that lights if the
'External Amplifier' component is muted with
amixer set 'External Amplifier' mute

And since I like this, I made that the command to be run when this
button is pressed. Something odd happens though:

The led goes on immediately, but the sound still continues for a few
seconds! How can this happen? (and how can i solve this?)
