Default Audio keeps turning off Macbook

Hey guys, I've looked around for an answer to this and cant seem to find one. My audio seems to only work with one thing at a time, and if i want to use it for something else i need to close and reopen the lid. For example, if im listening to a track on itunes, and then want to listen to something on soundcloud, \ i'll need to put my laptop to sleep and wake it again to be able to listen to soundcloud. Then if i want to use itunes again i'll need to do the same thing. This is very annoying!
Please halp

Whats your macbook model number ?
What is your current mac os ?
What browser were you using with sound cloud ?
Can you look under utilities in your application folder and find Activity Monitor ?

Open up the activity monitor and run soundcloud again, make note if the hard cpu usage kicks up to high before it crashes.

I want you to read this:

Read crmne response and see if that may help/

Also about the power saver in mac you may need to adjust it.
If your on the road alot and keep this macbook on.
Consider having the mac book going into sleep mode when the machine idle for more than 30 minutes.
Do not have it turn off the hard drive if you have a browser open and sound cloud going.

If your not on the road much with your macbook.
Have the os not put it to sleep, hibernate or turn off the machine if its plugged in.
