    So, I have a 15" Alu PowerBook running 10.4.3.

    The speakers keep spontaneously not working. It's happened 4 times in the last 18 hours.

    the only thing I've been doing on my PB differently is now I'm running F@H in terminal overnight, every night (and every time I leave my PB for more than a few minutes).

    A restart always fixes it... I've repaired permissions, fiddled with system preferences, and all that good stuff.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

    Pretty please help?
    Thanks :D

    Do you use headphones?

    According to my Lil Bro since he has a AlBook, the PB thinks the headphones are connected. Connect a headphone and pull it out and your souns will come back to your speakers. He said it has nothing to do with the OS.

    Could it be a loose connection somewhere inside?

    Definitely a good idea to send it for some "medicals" :)

    But would that be fixed with a restart?


    I know it wouldn't be fixed with a restart if it were a hardware thing. I was being facetious.

    I also love that word.

    I had a situation on my rev A 12" PB where the balance would shift on its own every day. I didn't realise that was the cause so I kept rebooting, which resolved the problem. I was using these wee dodgey self-powered speakers at the time via the headphone jack so I don't know if that's the same sort of situation or not.

    Afraid I have no solutions as once I figured it out and reset it through system preferences, the problem went away.
