Build joyride 1583, q2d09: I have an etoys script making a short tick sound (w/o reverb) each second. Machine goes to sleep after 35 secs without user input. Touching the pad wakes it up, the script continues visibly, but no sound is heard. Switching away and back to Etoys restores the sound (presumably due to Etoys stopping and starting its sound player on deactivation via dbus).
If instead of the short tick sound I use a longer sound that lasts more than a second, Etoys even freezes after wake up. Switching away and back makes it work again.
I have also seen that occasionally even switching forth and back did not restore sound. In one case MiniTamTam could restore sound, in another case aplay on the command line did. In other cases, MiniTamTam ceased to produce sound, and I also saw aplay playing silently. So I assume this problem is not unique to etoys, though I did not test other activities extensively (and I only have an MP machine for a few days so I did not see the problem earlier).
