Windows 7: No sound after computer wakes up from sleep mode - Win7

No sound after computer wakes up from sleep mode - Win7


I am using the realtek onboard sound that came with my Gigabyte MB. Sometimes when I wake the computer up, it says that I disconnected the sound. However the speakers are still connected. Even if I plug in a set of headphones that I know work, the system will not recognize them. If I restart the PC the speakers are found again(it doesn't state this, I just have the sound back).

I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. I downloaded the newest drivers from Gigabytes website and it still has the same issue.

By the way I am just using analog speakers.

I think one the "optional" Windows-7 updates is supposed to fix that.

I don't lose sound but if I let this PC go into sleep more I get audio that is sometimes garbled so I just shut of the monitors and drives.

My laptop wakes immediately after I put it to Sleep mode
It's been like this since I installed Windows 7. No device is wake armed except for the keyboard but I sure don't press anything (I'd have noticed and wouldn't be here). When I put it to Sleep it sleeps for a second and then wakes up. If I try again, it may sleep without problems but suddenly...
