    No, it isn't normal.

    Did this always happen or suddenly start happening?

    Do you get a specific error message when you try to play the song after wake? If so, type it in exactly as it appears or take a screenshot.

    Is there anything unusual about your setup? Are the music files managed by iTunes or by you, and are they inside your user directory (i.e. in the Music folder) or elsewhere?

    Is this the latest iTunes (7.3.2), latest Quicktime (7.2, I think?), and latest OS X (10.4.10)?

    Mmm, are the files in your home directory, somewhere else on your drive, or on another drive somewhere else?

    Have you set iTunes to automatically copy all your music to one location (the iTunes folder)?

    In the song grid, the leftern most column, does the song have a "?" on a bubble near it? This indicates that iTunes cannot find the song at that path.
