Not sure if I should be posting this here or the arch board (I dont think there is a manjaro board but arch is close enough) but I'm still learning the in and outs of all this and this board has been really helpful with ambiguous problems.

Audio will randomly stop, only after waking up or logging in. It never happens during playback. It seems once I get it working again it doesn't happen.
Oddly enough, I cannot recreate the problem it's pretty inconsistent but its happening fairly regularly
What happened when it started:
I was trying to connect headphones by bluetooth. Beats headphones (if this is relevent). It connected right up, but it took a little bit of troubleshooting before I realized I had to manually switch the output source to be the headphones. The problem started shortly after this so I am guessing this is what started it.
Here is what I am noticing, simply plugging an audio cable in and then out resets playback to the speakers. I took at look at the 'audio mixer' and saw this, whe nthe headphones are plugged in, speakers switch to "muted", masters level drops slightly, and 'mic boost' turns up a bit. Unplugging them unmutes the speakers, puts master back to maximum, and turns mic boost down.
I haven't seen the audio mixer while the problem is still happening because It's become a kneejerk reaction to just quickly stick the headphones jack in to fix it.
I've seen this thread:
and this following article:
These seem more applicable to ubuntu and the problem itself seems different.
