I have to reboot and I wil have sound for a few hours, then lose the sound and I have to reboot to restore the sound. Anyone have the same problem?

Baby let me be,
Your lovin teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck,
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear.

I don't wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
Cause lions aint the kind
You love enough.

There a couple of audio bugs in Lion that I've heard about.

Temporary Fix #1: try repeatedly inserting and removing an earphone plug from the audio jack. See if that makes the problem go away for awhile.

Temporary Fix #2: quit all of your apps or logout and log in again.


If fix #2 works then it's an old bug. The same bug was present in 10.6 and was supposedly fixed in the latest OS update. It will probably be patched for 10.7 in the first Lion update.

'Not sure what'd be wrong if fix #1 works. 'Just noticed that some people have reported success with that juju.

Yep, I had the problem and it was one of the major factors that caused me to roll back to SL. Plug a headphone device and unplug rapidly. Restores it.
