this used to work just fine in previous versions of my system. But now it is often the case that I expect to get audio feedback of my computer, as my audio is not muted, but it just does not play any audio. The only fix in this case (alsamixer does not help) is to open
pavucontrol and click on mute audio in the Output Devices tab.
This issue happens very frequently to me, often after I put my laptop to hybrid-sleep and wake it up again, but I am not really sure - I did not understand the pattern yet, how this happens and it does not happen always.
Maybe you guys know some help? if there is no fix, maybe there is at least a command that toggles or unmutes my
Built-in Audio Analog Stereo as it is called in pavucontrol.

I think I found out, where the bad vibes are coming from:
I use this Volume Icon tool (Version 0.5.1) that comes by default in manjaroI3 and for some reason when I use its mute toggling function it will mute my sound but will not unmute it - whereas it displays it as unmuted. The only way to unmute my sound is through
