Pause and resume Gnome Mixer Applet for Suspend-to-disk

I've finally managed to get suspend-to-disk using Software Suspend 2 (, but it seems to need that I unload the sound card drivers prior to suspending. Unfortunately, the Gnome mixer applet that sits in the tray seems to have the driver constantly in use, so in order to hibernate, I have to manually kill the mixer_applet2 process.

Therefore what I would like to know is it possible to release and restart the mixer applet's lock on the sound card drivers at will?

Alternatively, I can configure the hibernate script to kill the applet process; how can I restart and reinsert the mixer applet into the tray on resume?

I'm running Fedora Core 4, kernel 2.6.13-1.1532_1.rhfc4.cubbi_swsusp2. My sound card is an Audigy 2SE OEM and it uses the following modules:
