If you are able to play sound files on your desktop, the problem is not with 
alsa. It is just that Squeak is waiting for your sound server to release the 
audio device. You need to turn on the auto-suspend on idle option of your 
sound server in desktop configuration settings.

For instance, on KDE desktops, press ALT+F2 and run the "arts" command. The 
last section gives you the Auto-Suspend option.

Hope this helps .. Subbu
