[ubuntu] Sound problems after regular updates 12.04.1LTS

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm on a Hp laptop and I've been running Ubuntu for several months without a single sound issue. After a regular update notice popped up, I updated the 20 or so things. Now whenever the PC locks the screen from being idle too long I loose sound from my headphone jack (into my external speakers) and onboard speakers when I unplug the externals. All sound gets defaulted to run through my HDMI and through a second monitor. Under SOUND it still shows my two options of HDMI/Displayport and HEADPHONES but only the HDMI has sound. Also there is a "mute" hotkey on one of my F-keys (Hardware)
