Default Sound not staying at 5.1 in 'Sound' tab

If I leave my computer idle for a while it reverts from 5.1 surround sound in the Advanced Sound menu to 'Desktop Stereo Speakers" I go from my beautiful surround sound to only 2 speakers working.
I make sure to hit "Apply" and then "Ok" and I don't even have to turn the computer off for it to revert, just leave it idle for a while.
Any idea why this happened or how I can fix it?
I argue with people on internet message boards.
Don\'t copy dat floppy!
