[SOLVED] Sound choppy after suspend/resume

Postby oishiiburger » Thu Jan 10, 2013 3:35 am

Hello all,

I'm having an issue with Mint 14 on my Lenovo T530. After suspend/resume, the sound is choppy -- it's as if the mute goes on and off about twice a second, over and over. Using alsa force-unload or alsa force-reload does not work, and the sound remains choopy until reboot.

The sound is using the snd-hda-intel module, and I'm using options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad in alsa-base.conf (it doesn't make a difference). More details below. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

$ sudo lspci -v | grep Audio

To anyone having a similar problem, after much fuss I was able to fix the problem by adding a script named 11suspend to /etc/pm/sleep.d with the following contents.

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/amixer sset Master mute
/usr/bin/amixer sset Master unmute

It seems muting and unmuting on sleep solves the issue of choppiness after resume.
