Has anyone else heard this, and might could give insight as to what system events might cause it?

My guess would go to pulseaudio/pipewire suspending audio device on idle and bringing it back on when some is trying to access audio. Something like:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PulseAu...g_playback

I would check it myself but my internal audio device is disabled in pipewire configuration, speakers physically disconnected and jumper is in position to enable serial console in headphone jack. Did my best to kill the thing.

The description of the issue in that wiki sounds exactly like what I'm experiencing, however the fixes listed in the wiki do not seem to resolve the issue for me.

I opened a thread on the same issue as described by Stickman before I saw his report: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=17142

I just got mine a little over a week ago & I love it!!

Hit some issues (software, not hardware) trying different distros, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed.

Paired it up with a powered USB hub for my external drives & everything's working fine.

Great work on this!, it’s a perfect compliment to my other devices.
Sent from my Pinebook Pro.
Thank you PineTeam for your outstanding work!

You can try to stop the audio device from powering down. https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...7#pid91697
