Probably you're running a sound daemon such as ESD, ARTS or JACK (no pun
intended). Those programs block the sound device and prevent other apps
from using it. Some of the daemons have a automatic disconnect feature,
which will make them release the sound device after a certain time of
inactivity. Your desktop environment probably starts one of these daemons
automatically; you need to find the option to turn it off :-)
