Man i hear ya.
Every time i leave my house my stereo starts whimpering and whining. It crawls up to me with its amps laid back and DVD-a hung low.
I blame myself though. because when my system was fresh and new everytime i came home i would run up to it and play with it, and when i left i would be all sad and come back several times before i finally left.
You have to ween the rig off of this behavior and just start ignoring it when you leave. Because when you respond to its sad state of being it thinks that it might convince you to stay. Eventually though, as your system matures, it will start to get a rythem to your day to day activities and will become accostumed to you leaving for work, and it will start to understand that you WILL in fact be back.
One tip, be sure to lay out some towels by your door so when you get home and it gets all excited and starts jumping that if any fluid leaks that ti doesent stain the carpet
Hope that helps! :)
