Solved hdmi tv sound goes back to pc speakers after 30 mins.

Specs: Windows 7
If the mouse isn't moved for 30 minutes, the hdmi connected tv sound from the pc goes back to the pc speakers despite the tv being set as default in Sound . change system sound > playback in control panel. I need to just touch the mouse for the sound to go through tv once more. As I am listening to hypnosis tracks this is very annoying!

Both answers were as good. Answer 2 had more detail. It was "Turn off the display" which was set to short.

Thanks again to both of you. Lifesavers!... as I am trying to change a pretty bad habit through hypnosis.

I wonder if a power setting or screensaver setting is somehow interfering. Check your power saving settings and screen saver settings. If one is set at 30 minutes, try changing it to something longer for testing purposes.

✔ Best Answer
Check under 'Power Options' in Control panel and change everything to 'never' when on mains power. I would guess that something is set to go into a sleep mode or similar after 30 minutes. It may vary depending on the manufacturer - for example with Dell machines, there's an option 'to enable audio power management' which I don't know what it does but if you have anything like that try disabling it.
