:-) Yepp, found it!
What I did is, since I am using esd, I added in the /etc/init.d/alsa
start and stop sections, the corresponding /etc/init.d/esd that I wrote
to control the esd daemon. Since I have a kill -9 for the esd process,
no matter who is playing, it always dies nicely and ALSA dies too before
sleep. Now everything works! :-)
I am into Firewire now, for my iPod... and I also want to run the modem,
perhaps to send faxes and stuff. Or as a telephone... I have been
searching around for linux programs to do that... any idea? :-)
Thanks a lot!
