KeepSoundAwake sits in the background and plays a "silent sound" every 20 seconds, thereby preventing the audio hardware from sleeping.KeepSoundAwake is free software. It is free as in beer, and it is free as in redistributable with source code. This application is only useful if you have one of the machines listed in Apple knowledge base article 106766. It will not hurt otherwise, but there's no point in running it. It is not a "fix". It is a workaround, as the docs make clear.
