No sound from Kodi after resuming from sleep

I've had a problem with having to restart my HTPC after it had resumed from sleep mode. The issue was that there would be no sound. Some nice folks over at the Kodi forum have provided a fix for this issue. I'm not sure if anyone has been frustrated by this issue but I wanted to pass the link along just in case.

I realize this may just be a bandaid, but set your HTPC to never go to sleep. My computer is always on, and I know I am not alone in this tactic.

Yes I was thinking about doing that as well, but I'd like knowing that I'm saving a bit of energy letting the pc sleep. The linked page also states that you can cover HDMI pin #19 with electrical tape to solve the audio issue as well (however somebody says that covering the pin could cause other issues?).

Either way, I know this issue has caused me mild frustrations and I wanted to pass it along.

Another way to fix this issue without restarting the PC is to just power off the AV receiver and power it back on. Unplugging the HDMI cable and plugging it back in also works but can be hard to do and puts a lot of stress on the cable and connector. Of course if you bring the PC out of sleep before the HDMI hand shake from the display it also won't fail over to internal audio.

Very true, excellent point. I was powering the receiver on before resuming from sleep (harmony remote sequence).
