I have a late 2011 MBP running Lion, since updating to the new OS my iTunes has randomly paused itself, meaning I have to click on Play to hear the music again. I have looked online for a solution, and it appears this problem has been around for years and remains unresolved, with no support from Apple. I have another problem with iTunes, in that I use Airport Express to play my music via my hi fi speakers, and it regularly breaks down. However this is a problem of the Wi Fi signal, again a common problem that Apple has not addressed. I don't however think this problem is connected to the Pausing issue. Any ideas please ?
