no audio when lid closed.


Hello All,

I have this problem with my Fedora 9 installation on my IBM T61.

When I close the lid and then open it again the audio would be gone. I will have to log off and then back on to get it back.

Any one had a similar problem? or can help me with this?

Thanks.

ok try a restart of alsa inside re-awakened system

Code:
su
/etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart

2) suspend again and see if if stops again...if (1) worked create a bash script and stick it in the desktop to run on clicking

3) if alsa-utils failed for you can you report if alsamixer shows volumes ok and unmuted where needed

I do not have that script on my laptop. And there is no alsa* service on my laptop. Also that alsamixer is ok.

Any other clue?

yes and no

I found this setting inside /etc/default/alsa but yours may be diff area as diff distro

Code:
# Configuration file for alsa-base

# List, separated by spaces, the names of modules that should be
# unloaded, if present, before the machine is suspended. Use the
# special name "all" if you would like all ALSA sound modules to be
# removed. The modules that are removed will be loaded again after
# resume.  Currently this only has an effect if you are using apmd.
# Examples:
#     Value         Action at suspend time
#     ""            Do nothing
#     "snd-cs46xx"  Stop sound processes and remove the snd-cs46xx module
#     "all"         Stop sound processes and remove all ALSA modules
force_unload_modules_before_suspend=""
I would suggest try all and see if that helps
