Hi all,

I am currently using a generic USB soundbar I got off Amazon for $15. The quality is fine for what I need, but the issue I have is that when my laptop goes into a deep sleep and I wake up my PC the speakers are no longer detectable. I need to unplug and replug the usb cable then they're fine until the next deep sleep. I see this problem is not just isolated to these speakers, but all plug and play speakers that don't have their own driver support, and relay on the generic windows driver.

I would love to be able to just fix the problem and not have to buy another set of speakers with driver support, but will if I have to because this issue is very annoying.
