CHAT: Zhongwen (Chinese) Question

Okay, so I have a pile of Chinese grammars, dictionaries, and phrase
books, and roughly half of them say that
are voiced stops and roughly half of them say that
are simply unaspirated stops.
Listening to Chinese, it seems sometimes these are voiced, and sometimes
simply unaspirated. So my question is -- how do I know if they're going
to be voiced, and how do I know if they're going to just be unaspirated?
