Play a sound when there are no idle entities.

Description

Play a sound when there are no idle entities.

If there are no idle units and the idle-unit hotkey is pressed there is now a sound played.
Beneficial when there are already units selected since selection doesn't change.

Sound courtesy of @Samualis.

With the "default settings" I could hardly hear the sound, after lowering the "music volume" and increasing the "action volume" to max the sound is better noticeable.
After increasing the sound with ffmpeg (ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html#volume) by a factor of 8, it is now better noticeable with the "default settings".

ffmpeg -i alarm_no_idle_unit_01.ogg  -af 'volume=8' alarm_no_idle_unit_01.ogg
