    No sound after suspend/hibernate

    I recently did a fresh install of 9.10 on my Gateway MD7818 laptop. I've never had any issues with sound before on this laptop with linux or windows until now. When ever my laptop sits unused for a period of time, or goes into suspend OR hibernate, I lose sound after waking it up. Any idea where I can start with this?

    When the sound is down look at the System>Admin>system monitor and see if pulseaudio is running.

    sudo killall pulseaudio && sudo pulseaudio && exit

    Re: No sound after suspend/hibernate

    Hello all,

    I have a Dell Dimension 4600 with an MAudio Delta 44 sound card on Ubuntu Studio 8.04. I also have the same problem in which my audio is muted when I resume from suspend/hibernate.

    I have tried some of the hints posted earlier in this thread and that didn't work, the latter part of the thread just confuses me.

    Anyway, what I found that DOES get me my audio back without rebooting is to go into the terminal and type this:

    sudo alsa force-reload

    This DOES get my sound back. Now I know the easy way out would be to create a button on my desktop to click on when my computer resumes, BUUUUT, I don't want that, I would like my machine to resume WITH my sound restored as well without any extra hoop jumping. Does anyone know of a way to get that?

    Thank You,

    Geo

    Well a work around that has worked for me was upon resume

    Volume Control > Mute All> Unmute


    And sound resumes. Again it's just a work around.

    I'm running ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx.

    The mute all --> unmute thing works for me as well. Thanks for the tip!

    Now if I could just figure out how to automate that.
