Geert,

I was having this specific problem when trying to use mplayer. What I did
was change the "Autosuspend if idle for" setting. It can be found in
Control Center -> Sounds & Multimedia -> Sound System -> aRTs tab (feels
vaguely like describing a windows problem :). I set mine at 5 seconds.
Your's will of coarse depend.
