I have Polk Hampden speakers on my System76 desktop here. The sound is great, but if no sound plays for ~15 minutes, it goes into a power saving mode where no sound plays until there is about 8 seconds of audio again. So notifications, incoming calls etc. are all muted whether I want them to or not.
One guy on the polkaudio forums created a script in Windows that plays a 20Hz tone for 10 seconds every 15 minutes that seems to fix the problem.
So I created a 20Hz .mp3 that lasts for 15 seconds (
20Hz.mp3), I installed
mpg123 and verified that this command works:
What's the best way to execute this command in the background every 15 minutes?
