Perfect solution for specific problem, but not all applications

This solution works when pausing and resuming from the same sound source such as a movie:

Edit Pulse Audio configuration file: sudo -H gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa

Locate this section and place # in front of second line:

### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
# load-module module-suspend-on-idle

Save the file and exit.

Reload Pulse Audio using pulseaudio -k.

Where it doesn’t work.

Whilst watching a movie I can have laundry timer running in the background. When a alert sounds to signal end of Wash Cycle, Rinse Cycle or Dryer no sound is heard. The alert sound was < 5 seconds. The workaround is to pick a different sound file > 5 seconds long.
