Sound no work after hibernate

I have a Dell Lattitude D810 laptop with an internal audio card that is not that great, so I connected an external device - a Tascam US-144 MKII.  This allows me to use music programs with a piano keyboard - without latency problems. The Device works via USB.

Connecting the device solved one big problem but created another that is a little irritating.  When I hibernate the computer and the un-hibernate, the sound no longer works.  I have found a solution.  I go into Change System Sounds (in Windows) and in properties, disable the device, then re-enable it.  Once it's re-enabled things work as they should.

I'm just wondering if there is a way around this - some setting or something.  If not, is there an easier way to reset things?  It's kind of a drag to have to go through all those button clicks to get reset after hibernating.

You could try going into the Power Management settings and turn off hibernate?
( I find it causes various different issues for me and doesnt always come out of hibernate )

- I just change the power management settings to use the screen saver after 15 minutes with the logon screen upon waking.  I also set the monitor to turn off after 30 minutes.  This keeps the applications and all the stuff running while still saving energy by turning the monitor off...

To do this:
- Go to "Control Panels"
-- "Power Options"
--- "Change Plan Settings" - the one you currently have selected
--- Set : "Put the computer to sleep" to "Never" & Turn off Display to 30 mins.

Or is this a laptop your running on that you are concerned about battery life?

You might also try :
- Go to "Control Panels"
-- "Power Options"
--- "Change Plan Settings" - the one you currently have selected
--- "Change advanced settings"
--- Expand the "USB Settings"
--- Disable the USB Suspend setting
