I always play with sound! I couldn't imagine not playing with sound. Well...if maybe the sound were really, really, really badly done. But even then, I'd probably still play with the really bad sound so that I could actually critique the sound in detail when writing a review.

I always start with sound, but may turn it off if:
1) I want it quiet (in a public place, other people listening to something, etc)
2) Music loops are too short or music is annoyingly cliche
3) There are grating sound effects that happen on mouseovers, etc.

Always, even when there's no voice.

Unless it's dissonant, sound keeps me engaged, so yes I do play with sound on. Especially if there's voice acting, the characters just come to life :) Just having a sprite and text box there is not enough for me, I want to hear them talk!

The BGM adds greatly to the atmosphere, and SFX can add a nice touch to a scene. It really enhances the playing experience.
