This problem has been driving me crazy.

After my laptop goes to screensaver, the music continues to play, when I enter my pin it will stop and hitting the play button keeps it on zero with no playback.

It would also happen that if I had an Aux cable connected and pulled it out it would not switch to speakers but if I plugged the same aux cable in the audio would continue.

It happens with iTunes, and pandora. iTunes i have to close and reopen, pandora i just have to refresh the page.

I tried uninstalling, itunes, bonjour, and any apple service, and updated my audio drivers. my device manager shows conexant smartaudio hd and high definition audio device.

and help would be awesome!
