Windows 7: Windows 7 losing audio driver after waking from sleep...

Windows 7 losing audio driver after waking from sleep...

I recently installed Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on a machine utilising an Asus M4N82 Deluxe motherboard. I subsequently installed all current drivers for use with Windows 7 64 bit for the Mobo downloaded from the Asus website. Windows 7 itself found current drivers for the peripherals that it supports. For the first few days all ran well without any issues. Then Win 7 ran some updates and now whenever I awake my computer from sleep mode it tells me that the audio driver is not installed. No audio drivers display in Device Manager either. The sound,video, and audio controllers entry is simply gone! A restart brings it back--or has so far--but what is causing it and is there anything I can do? I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver to no avail. From web searches this seems to be a common problem with no clear answer which likely means it is an issue with MS at the root of it and unwilling or unable to address it.

I have Win 7 on an SSD. Would it be safe to set the Sleep Mode to never or set a clock screensaver?

Any help is appreciated.

Solved this one by modifying the Power Options Plan. Set the display to sleep after a time and instructed the computer to never sleep. Seems to be the way most folk are contending with this one.
