Linux shutdown disables sound device in BIOS.

Using Slackware 9 on an HP Pavilion 1.2g w/integrated sound device.

Sound works fine until I shutdown the computer. Then, the sound device gets disabled. I must then go into bios setup and switch the device back to 'enabled' or 'auto'. After which I get a 'cmos checksum bad' error message. The sound then works until I restart the computer again.

Powering down the computer without shutting down Linux does not disable the sound device.

Thank you,
