After suspend PulseAudio automatically switch audio signal from other than analog output (eg. opical / S/PDIF / TOSLINK / IEC958) to HDMI output.


Edit /etc/pulse/default.pa to comment out (add # to the start of) the line:

#load-module module-switch-on-port-available

"Reload" PulseAudio:

/usr/bin/pasuspender /bin/true

If above command not found or reload can't be completed try restart PulseAudio daemon:

pulseaudio --kill; pulseaudio --start
