Thank you for your time in trying to help me solve this issue, Aphelion.
Interesting, thanks for posting back.
I had a friend whose sound would shut off, she was using an older but very expensive set of Altec Lansing computer speakers. Something very similar would happen with the subwoofer shutting down and thus muting the system. Unplugging and plugging it back in to the power outlet would set everything back.
These speakers also had a USB connection that wasn't used.
