I am having strange issues with sound and volume with Ubuntu 11.10

I've noticed very often, especially when I get my computer out of sleep, it lacks sound even though the volume slider is cranked all the way up, but when I plug my headphones in and then take them out, it seems to kick start my sound back!

What gives?

What daemon in /etc/int.d needs to be restared with the restart command to fix this?

I have the following in my init.d folder

/etc/init.d/alsa-restore and /etc/init.d/alsa-store

Also, my start up Ubuntu sound doesn't play either....

I had the same problem when I plug hadphone jack (in Ubuntu 11.10). I found pacmd command that show console

$ pacmd
Welcome to PulseAudio! Use "help" for usage information.

I run this

>>> list-sinks

and it returns that second sink (I have hdmi and analog stero) was mute

muted: yes

so I call (help will show all the commands).

>>> set-sink-mute 1 false

and it enabled the sound (before that I restarted puleaudio - $ sudo /etc/init.d/pulseaudio but I think it was not needed).
