Hi Ranchers,

I have recently started using Ubuntu because of its light-weight nature and the craze it has got among the users. It is good to use.

I found out one strange this as the audio gets lost after some time of inactivity. I found this when playing an mp3 file which was playing fine previously. This time there is no sound, no matter whatever i try to adjust the volume control. It gets corrected once i restart my PC.

Is there any remedy for this? Has any one come across this situation?

Thanks in advance!

As a temporary workaround, try to change the audio system from PulseAudio back to ALSA (given that you are using Ubuntu Hardy Heron).

Hey,

My Ubuntu has the ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) for 'sound capture' as the default. But still the error persists.

Any help?

Well is the ALSA system also used for playback?
I suggest searching through the Ubuntu forums.

Hi Sid,

thank you. it was mentioned as 'Auto detect' and i believe it would take the most appropriate one by default. Is nt it? Anyways, as you suggested, let me change it to ALSA and check.
