After a period of time when no audio is playing the audio drops. This stops sending an audio signal through my S/PDIF which causes my DAC/AMP to turn off shortly after. If I have my speakers turned on when this happens a loud pop occurs. Also, when I start playing audio again it takes a couple of second for the DAC/AMP to boot.
I am not seeing any options in audio settings to keep audio alive. Does this option exist or can it be added?
I drop this textfile as "snd_hda_intel.conf" in /etc/modprobe.d on my Intel/Intel machines:
options snd_hda_intel power_save=0
An ugly workaround might be to install an app like caffeine that may prevent this from happening. Again, not a proper fix, just an ugly workaround if you have no luck fixing things with a proper configuration file.
