S/PDIF (optical) sound (light?) turns off after 6.5s of silence

I use TOSLINK to connect my amplifier with PC.
After updating from 19.1 to 19.2 (cinnamon)
And switching to kernel 5.0.0-25-generic from 4.15.0-58
I noticed audio problem
If no sound is played for 6.5s I assume optical port gets turned off (audible sound in speakers)
Using TOSLINK integrated with motherboard
Re-engaging optical connection takes about 1.5s of sound to play, so stuff like discord messages can be completely missed out.
