Every time I wake my machine from sleep Pulseaudio goes bananas and goes to 49-50% CPU use, i.e. it hogs one core. I have tried running pasuspender before sleeping ("pasuspender -- nano" to be precise), but that has made no difference. So I have to kill Pulse each time I wake the machine, which means I have to then kill Flash and Skype to get their sound working again.

Is there any way I can stop this happening?
