It's so clever that nobody knows, even the programmers, why:

1. It consumes CPU when idle. It doesn't matter if it's OSS, ALSA, a 
SounBlaster or a integrated Intel sound card. It doesn't matter neither 
if you change the setting to "autosuspend if idle". 

2. It locks the device so every other application that try to play a sound 
is starved. It doesn't matter that "autosuspend if idle" is marked.
